Greek Quinoa Salad

Purple Oven Mitt
It's a new week full of possibilities! Although our Seahawks didn't make it past the Falcons & we are still unsure if a Sonics team will materialize I do have great news; my sister may be flying into town this week. I always feel hopeful in times like these.

I'm focusing on gluten free cooking today as both of my sisters avoid gluten.  One of my favorite things about Quinoa (other than I can finally say it properly-ha) is that it's filling and I don't feel stuffed or bloated after eating it.

Greek Quinoa Salad

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups water 
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup sliced Kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup Greek salad dressing (I like Trader Joe's brand)

Cook quinoa according to package instructions. Place in a bowl.

Toss all ingredients together. Add quinoa and serve! Easy. Healthy & Gluten Free.

Serves: 4
