Tomato Cucumber Feta Quinoa Salad


– 1/2 cup quinoa – 1/4 cup feta, crumbled – 1/2 cucumber, chopped – 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped – 2 green onions, green and white parts chopped – 1/2 pint of cherry tomatoes, sliced – 2 Tablespoons olive oil – 1 lemon, juiced – Salt and pepper to taste


1. Cook quinoa according to directions. Set aside to cool. 2. In a large mixing bowl combine the feta cheese, cucumber, fresh parsley, green onions and cherry tomatoes.

3. Add the olive oil and lemon juice mixing to coat the salad. 4. Add the quinoa and mix to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.

If I make this and have leftovers I will often adjust the taste the next time I eat it. The lemon and olive oil really soak into the quinoa so to bring the flavor back out try adding a bit of each until you are at your desired flavor.

Tomato Cucumber and Feta Quinoa Salad offers the crunch of cucumbers, fresh tomatoes and creamy feta mixed with healthy, filling quinoa topped with a light lemony dressing. This salad is a great addition to your summer meals, BBQ or picnics.
