  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

For the Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  1. Cook the Quinoa:

    • In a medium-sized saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the rinsed quinoa and a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked and the water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and let it cool.

    • While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the vegetables. Dice the cucumber, halve the cherry tomatoes, chop the red bell pepper, finely chop the red onion, and slice the Kalamata olives.
  3. Make the Dressing:

    • In a small bowl, whisk together the extra-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and pepper to create a zesty dressing.
  4. Combine and Toss:

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked and cooled quinoa with the diced vegetables, Kalamata olives, crumbled feta cheese, and chopped fresh parsley.
  5. Dress the Salad:

    • Pour the prepared dressing over the salad mixture. Gently toss everything together until all ingredients are well coated with the dressing.
