Tomato Cucumber Feta Quinoa Salad offers the crunch of cucumbers, fresh tomatoes and creamy feta mixed with healthy, filling quinoa and topped with a light lemony dressing. This salad is a great addition to your summer meals, BBQ or picnics.
When I plant my garden I always go a little overboard with tomatoes. I plant at least 10-12 tomato plants and by the time summer is over we are eating tomatoes in almost every meal. This year when Will started helping me plant my garden the first thing he mentioned was how he loved eating the cherry tomatoes last year. We ate them like candy!
I think tomatoes make everything better, especially salads. Today’s recipe for Cucumber Tomato Feta Quinoa Salad is another one of my go-to salads that I make in the summer, especially when my tomatoes are plentiful. If you haven’t noticed I have been on a grain kick lately and really like adding them into salads. Recently I have made this Zucchini Chickpea Quinoa and Vegetable Bulgar Salad with Mint Yogurt Dressing salad–both are great choices.
I love adding quinoa to salads to add texture and keep me feeling full. I find quinoa to be a bit bland on its own and really like to find ways to incorporate it into our meals which usually leads me to salads. When I make this salad I like to add it to a bed of romaine or arugula or stuff it in a pita with a few scoops of hummus.
