  1. Thaw the frozen Strawberries (I thawed mine in the microwave as I forgot to take them out of the freezer).
  2. Squeeze the Lemons & crush the Garlic.
  3. Mix everything a food processor or blender.
  4. Adjust it to your taste, add a little more Sugar or Vinegar depending on your taste.

Salad:

  1. Cook the Quinoa in the Vegetable Broth for about 15 minutes until the broth is absorbed, cover and set aside to cool. I made mine the day before. If you do it the day of, spread it on a cookie sheet or plate to cool it quicker, it only needs to be room temperature
  2. Quarter the Strawberries.
  3. Thaw the frozen Peas by running them under hot water and set aside.
  4. Toast the Pecans in a dry pan over a medium-high heat, should only take about 5 minutes
  5. Dice the Green Onions and the Mint.
  6. Mix everything together with about 1/4 Cup of the Dressing, add more if you think it needs it.
  7. Top with crumbled Feta Cheese.
