Kiwi Lime Quinoa Salad

I got the idea for putting Kiwi in a quinoa salad from Iowa Girl Eats. I love sweet juicy kiwis, and I think they pair well with lime and banana. The tartness and sweetness of the lime and the fruit balance each other out for a light, summery dish. The bright greens also make for a very attractive dish.

Directions: Peel and dice the banana and kiwis (I used a potato peeler for the kiwi). Combine with the bell pepper and quinoa. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the quinoa mixture and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
