Greek Quinoa Salad

This salad puts two of our favorite things together-Greek flavors and quinoa. It's super hearty and protein-packed.I could probably make it every week and be happy!

Greek Quinoa Salad-adapted from Lulu's Recipe Box
Total Time: 20 Minutes
Serves 4

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1/3 cup kalamata olives, sliced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
In a medium saucepan add water and quinoa. Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for about 5 minutes. Simmer for another 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed. 

In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, tossing to coat. Add cooked quinoa and toss thoroughly.
