Asparagus and Pea Spinach Pesto Quinoa Salad

Asparagus and Pea Spinach Pesto Quinoa Salad

Here is a nice, bright, fresh and green summer salad with asparagus, fava or broad beans, peas and spinach in a bed of quinoa all mixed up with a nice big dollop of spinach pesto (or regular pesto)! This salad is as easy as it sounds to make where you just need to cook the quinoa and asparagus (any way you like, grilled is nice), blanch the fava beans, mix everything and you are done. I really enjoy this salad because it is so light and green and summery and the fresh basil pesto really makes it shine! It's great with all of the cooked ingredients still warm or cooled and it's also perfect straight from the fridge.
