Greek Quinoa Salad

This Greek Quinoa Salad is a staple in our house. We make it almost weekly and sometimes use pasta instead of Quinoa.

My kids both LOVE olives! This salad is always a year-round hit in our house and my oldest son takes it for lunch at school. He will eat it every day if I let him.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups cooked Quinoa
  • 1/2 cup crumbled or diced Feta
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/8 cup diced English cucumber
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Sliced Olives (green or black), or more if you love olives like us
  • 1 Tbsp Greek Seasoning
  • 1/2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar (optional)
  1. Cook Pasta or Quinoa as per pkg instructions.  (any pasta will do, but I like Orzo or penne, completely different, I know!)
  2. In a large bowl, combine all other ingredients and stir to blend flavours. I like to prepare this before cooking pasta to allow the flavours to combine. It will be even more flavourful if you can make this the night before.
  3. Add cooked pasta, toss well and serve.

We eat this at least once a week!

Make it into a complete meal by adding cooked chicken to the mixture. This is fantastic served warm or cold.
