Lemon Feta Quinoa Salad

img_3005
Ingredients

  • 2-3 Cups of Cooked Quinoa (In Chicken/Veg stock)
  • 100g of Feta
  • 1/2 Red Onion, Diced
  • Large Handful of Basil
  • Large Handful of Coriander
  • 8 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 Lemons
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper

This is my version of one of my mom’s delicious pasta salads. It was one of my favourite things when I was little and I used to think I was the best feta ‘fluffer’ whenever I helped her make it. My version swaps the pasta for quinoa, takes out the mayo and has a lot more herbs and a bit of crunch. And dare I say it, I think it’s better than the original! Sorry mom.

Chop your herbs quite finely, dice the onion, chop the tomatoes and fluff (crumble!) the feta.

Add all of the onion and tomato to the quinoa in a large bowl. Add in most of the feta and herbs too, keeping a little of each aside for topping at the end.

Drizzle in the olive oil and the juice of one and a half lemons and toss everything around.

Transfer it all to your serving bowl, top with the remaining feta and herbs and serve with a wedge of lemon.
