Greek Quinoa Salad
After Visiting my new FAVORITE restaurant called Freshii (all of you salmon creek people we have one next to Fred Meyers now!!!) I was inspired to create a greek quinoa salad! This last year I have taken on a new love from both Quinoa and Greek salads so why not mix them for the best of both worlds?
If your making it for an event I defiantly recommend making a double/triple batch
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1 small cucumber chopped
1/2 box cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/3 red onion cut in thin slices
handful of lettuce chopped into medium pieces
1/4 Cup olive oil
4 drops tapatio
black pepper and basil to sprinkle on top
Directions: Rinse quinoa and then add water and quinoa to a sauce pan and cover. Let water start to boil then turn heat down to medium-Low and cook for 10-15 minutes or until water if fully soaked up. While Quinoa is cooking, chop red onions and place them in a bowl of water, dry them before adding to the salad. Place qunioa in a bowl and add cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, olive, lettuce, feta (you decided how much to your liking), and sprinkle basil and black pepper on top. In a small bowl mix together olive oil and tapatio (add more or less tapatio depending on how spicy you like it). Add black pepper to dressing and then poor over quinoa.
