Quinoa Greek Salad

Quinoa is a great gluten-free source of protein, iron, and fiber, and it cooks in about 20 minutes. The only special handling required with quinoa is to give it a good rinse before cooking; otherwise, it can be bitter. Below is one of our favorite recipes!

Quinoa Greek Salad
  1. 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  2. 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  3. ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  4. 1 clove garlic, smashed and finely chopped to a paste
  5. Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  6. ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 cup quinoa
  8. Kosher salt and pepper
  9. 2 cups red and yellow grape tomatoes, halved
  10. 1 cup pitted kalamata olives
  11. 2 green onions (green and pale green part), thinly sliced

  1. Whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, garlic and some salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil until emulsified. Let sit at room temperature while you prepare the salad.
  2. Rinse the quinoa in a strainer until the water runs clear. Combine the quinoa, 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and cook until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a bowl, fluff with a fork and let sit for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Add the tomatoes, olives, green onions, cherry peppers, red onions, cucumbers and dressing and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours before serving. The longer it sits the better the flavor.
  4. Just before serving, transfer to a platter and sprinkle feta on top.
