Quinoa Salad Recipe

This is definitely one of my favorite salad recipes!  It’s a go-to on Spring and Summer days when I want to eat something healthy and easy to make.


The Ingredients

1 cup uncooked Quinoa

2 medium cucumbers sliced, then cut the slices into quarters

1 medium size can of sliced olives (black or kalamata)

1/4 red onion, chopped

Olive oil to taste

Balsamic glaze to taste

Feta cheese


Cook 1 cup quinoa according to directions and chill for at least 1 hour.

Mix vegetables, olive oil and quinoa together.

Top with balsamic glaze and feta.


This recipe is so delicious served with falafel.  I like to buy frozen falafel from Trader Joe’s to serve with this salad.
