Blueberry Basil Quinoa Salad

Blueberry and basil may be an unusual pairing, but I like it!  I was in the greenhouse looking for some cilantro, but it's all gone to seed so I turned towards the basil--and it's still going strong! 

4 c. cooked CHILLED quinoa
1/4 c. diced green onions
1/4 c. fresh basil, coarsely torn
1/3 c. cold pressed olive oil
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp. whole fruit only blueberry jam
1 pint fresh blueberries
1/2 tsp. cumin
sea salt to taste

Mix quinoa, green onions, and basil in a pretty bowl; set aside.  In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, blueberry jam, and cumin.  Toss gently into salad.  Add sea salt to taste.  (I used around 1 1/2 tsp.)
Refrigerate leftovers.
