What you'll need:
1 c quinoa (uncooked)
1/2 English cucumber (or regular one)
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 can chickpeas
1/4 c crumbled Feta cheese
1 c oil (I used grapeseed oil this time)
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
What I did:
In a small pot, I cooked my red quinoa, check your pkg instructions. I usually use 1/2 c less water than instructed and I cook it 3 mins less than instructed. This way there is no water left at the end. Put cooked quinoa in large bowl and set aside.
In a small bow I whisked together my oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Then set aside and chop up the remaining ingredients.
I quartered the cucumber and cut out the seeds and then sliced it up. I did the same with the tomato. Put cucumber and tomato into the large bowl of cooked quinoa.
Then I diced 1/2 an onion and stirred it into the quinoa/cucumber/tomato mixture.
Next I opened and drained out the can of chickpeas. I added 1/2 can into my quinoa mixture.
Finally, I mixed in my oil dressing and 1/4 c crumbled feta cheese into my quinoa mixture until everything was mixed together.
Covered and placed my bowl of quinoa salad into the refrigerator and I think it tastes best after sitting in the fridge overnight. Hope you all like this quick and easy recipe. Enjoy!!
