DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse and prepare quinoa per package directions.
  • While the quinoa cooks, prepare the other ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together juice of 1 lemon, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 cup black pepper.
  • Chop cucumber, red bell pepper, and red onion. Half or quarter cherry tomatoes. Add to bowl.
  • Next, add 2 cans drained garbanzo beans, and 1 can drained olives (if using).
  • Crumble feta cheese over the top, and add chopped parsley. Gently combine.
  • Once quinoa has cooked and cooled, add to the bowl and combine.
  • If mixture seems dry, you can always add more red wine vinegar or lemon juice.
  • Works well as a main dish over baby spinach, or as a side dish for grilled chicken or fish.
