Quinoa, Artichoke and Chicken Salad

The secret ingredient in the dressing is the toasted sesame seed oil, complimented by the addition of green onions.  This is a very yummy summer salad!

1 can artichoke hearts, cut into bite sized pieces
¼ cup sunflower seeds

1 large chicken breast, finely diced

¼ cup each toasted sesame seed oil and honey

Blend dressing ingredients and pour over salad ingredients.  Toss gently until all ingredients are coated.  Salt and pepper to taste.
