Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 1 ½ chicken broth
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/3 cup pitted greek olives chopped
  • 1 large cucumber chopped
  • ½ red onion chopped
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¾ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing

Instructions

  • Soak the quinoa in water for about 5 minutes. Then pour through a mesh strainer and rinse under cold water.
  • Combine the quinoa and chicken broth in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn down to low and let it simmer for 10 – 12 minutes or until the quinoa absorbs the liquid. Remove from heat, let cool, and then place in the refrigerator for ½ hour or so until the quinoa is completely cooled.
  • In a large bowl combine cooled quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, chickpeas, feta cheese, and ¼ cup dressing. Stir until all the ingredients are combined and coated with dressing.
  • Let the salad sit for 2-3 hours or overnight. Stir in the last ¼ cup of dressing and serve.
