Quinoa Salad Serves: 4


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
  • 1 large cucumber, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat feta cheese

  • In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the quinoa is tender.
  • Remove quinoa from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Then fluff quinoa with a fork and spread it out onto a large rimmed baking sheet to cool.
  • In a small bowl, whisk lemon juice, garlic and pepper. Gradually whisk in oil.
  • After the quinoa has cooled, transfer it to a large bowl and add the dressing, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley and onion. Top with feta cheese and toss gently to mix.
