Quinoa Salad 

  • 1/2 cup of quinoa
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup of cucumber, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite vinaigrette


  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the quinoa and water. Bring it to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed.
  3. Remove the quinoa from the heat and let it stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  4. Allow the quinoa to cool to room temperature. You can place it in the fridge to speed up this process.
  5. Once the quinoa is cooled, combine it with the cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and crumbled feta in a large bowl.
  6. Drizzle the salad with your favorite vinaigrette and mix until the salad is evenly coated. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve.
