We love the idea of serving salad in a teacup from party planner to the stars Mary Giuliani. This one is healthy, delicious and pretty.
Try Mary's other tea party-inspired recipes:
- 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
- One pinch salt
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
- 6 cups arugula
- 12 dried apricots, diced
- 1 cup blueberries
- ½ cup blue cheese
- 1 cup store-bought Italian dressing
In a saucepan, combine the quinoa with 1 ¾ cups water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes more. Uncover the quinoa and fluff with a fork.
Mixed cooked quinoa with EVOO. In a bowl, toss the quinoa with the arugula, apricots, blueberries and blue cheese.
When ready to serve, toss with Italian dressing. Serve in individual tea cups.
