If you are a fan of traditional Greek Salad and you are not sure if you like quinoa or have never tried it; this will make you a quinoa-a-holic!
Step 1 | Dressing:
Whisk dressing ingredients together.
Let sit at room temperature while you prepare the salad.
Step 2 | Quinoa:
Rinse quinoa in a strainer until the water runs clear. Combine quinoa, 2 cups water, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and cook until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.
Transfer quinoa to a bowl and fluff with a fork and let sit for five minutes to cool slightly
Step 3 | Add all these ingredients:
Step 4 | Feta for sprinkling
Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours before serving. The longer it sits, the better the flavor. Just before serving, transfer to a platter and sprinkle feta on top.
Variations: What is in your refrigerator? The first time I made this recipe I used carrots, diced pepperoncinis, tomatoes, cucumbers, some kalamata olives and sprinkled it with Feta. Yum! His dressing is so delicious that you can add any of your salad favorites. Be creative!
