Greek Quinoa Salad
I have a confession!
I am addicted to Greek Salad, and Greek food, and Avgolemono soup, but Greek Salad tops it all. I usually just eat the traditional Greek Salad of chopped vegetables, feta, olives, pepperoncinis and the delicious vinaigrette they put on it.
While it isn’t the same as my favorite traditional salad I still really liked it. Especially because it has quinoa, a healthy grain, in it.
The website Mind, Body, Green talks about 7 benefits of quinoa:
- Protein rich
- Twice as much fiber as most other grains
- Contains iron
- Rich in magnesium
- High in Riboflavin (B2)
- High content of manganese (antioxidant)
I love being able to add something healthy like quinoa into a salad that I already love and is packed full of veggies.
It is easy to whip up and easy to eat up! This recipe makes a large bowl so it’s perfect for a party, get together, or to have for lunches throughout the week and as a side to your dinner.
