Here is a Greek inspired quinoa salad using lime, Feta, Kalamata olives, and fresh parsley. This is one of those great side dishes that you can make a day or two ahead of time to let the flavors really marinate. If you have the time, toast the quinoa over medium heat before cooking for added flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 c. quinoa, uncooked
  • 2 limes, zest and juice
  • 4 oz. Feta cheese, crumbed
  • 2 oz. Kalamata olives, chopped, with brine
  • ¼ c. fresh parsley, stems removed and chopped

Instructions

1

Cook quinoa according to package directions. Remove from heat and let cool briefly.

2

Fluff quinoa with a fork and stir in lime zest, lime juice, Feta cheese, chopped olives, and fresh parsley until thoroughly combined. Season with black pepper, to taste.

3

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
