Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
This salad is yummy. I know because I ate it for lunch (and dinner) yesterday! A friend at school made this for a potluck at the end of the school year, and I have made it several times this summer. It's a great cold summer salad that fits in perfectly at any barbecue or potluck! I think what I love most about it are the contrasting textures and flavors- the crunchy red onions and cucumber contrast nicely with the creamy chickpeas and feta cheese. The refreshing and sweet cucumber and tomato pair well with the salty feta and olives. The Greek dressing brings it all together nicely and gives just enough lemon and oregano flavor without being overpowering. Visit Closet Cooking for the recipe!
