A simple summer salad with quinoa, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and olives dressed in lemon and olive oil with fresh herbs like dill, mint and parsley. All the flavors I crave at this time of the year.
Whether fresh from the backyard garden or the farmer’s market I almost always have them on hand. It makes throwing together a salad a cinch! Whether spur of the moment or planned.
While the quinoa gets to cooking you can work on the dicing and chopping. From there it comes together quickly and makes a great salad to serve alongside grilled chicken, fish or steak. It also makes a delicious and satisfying light lunch.
Or midnight snack.
