Minty Kaniwa Fruit Salad

February 6, 2019Johnfitt

You’ve probably heard of quinoa but have you ever heard of kaniwa? We tried it for the first time and couldn’t wait to share it with you! It’s the “cousin” of quinoa and has been named a new super food!

Kaniwa is actually an ancient grain and is grown in South American. It has more protein and more iron than quinoa. Kaniwa contains B vitamins as well! It’s a gluten free “grain” (actually a seed) and contains flavonoids. It’s smaller than it’s cousin and tastes great in a fruit salad! Perfect way to add protein to fruit.

You can really use any fruit you have on hand which is part of what make this such a quick and easy recipe. For the dressing we used our Easy Peasy Mint Dole Whip and boy is it delicious!
