Greek Quinoa Salad - 21 Day Fix approved

I love feta and olives, so I'm always looking for healthy meals and ️sides to incorporate then. 

I like to make this salad for a simple make-ahead lunch with grilled or roasted veggies, and it's great for a picnic, potluck or party too!!  I made it for Labor Day at our house yesterday. 

So good!!!!  Feel free to add more ️veggies or change up the ingredients.  It's super versatile. 

Happy Cooking!!!

Greek Quinoa Salad

1 cup quinoa, cooked according to package instructions
2 T red wine Vinegar
2 T olive oil
Salt & pepper
1 cup canned garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed 
1 cup diced cucumber
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half (mine were yellow tomatoes)
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/3 cup sliced green olives
1/2 lemon, juiced
More red wine vinegar, salt, pepper & olive oil to taste

Cook quinoa according to package, scrape into a bowl & immediately add 2 T each red wine vinegar & olive oil while hot.  Combine well, season with salt & pepper.  Set aside until it's at room temperature.

Once cooled, add all the other I ingredients, mix well, and add additional vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper to taste.
