A healthy and easy-to-make Greek Quinoa Salad with a simple dressing
Thoroughly wash your quinoa and follow package directions to cook the quinoa.
Coarsely chop the spinach. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half and slice the black olives either in half or in slices.
Peel the cucumber in stripes or leave the peel on, deseed if desired, and chop into small pieces. (I leave seeds and peel on!)
Remove the avocado skins and pit and chop into small pieces.
Combine the cherry tomatoes, black olives, cucumber, and avocado in a medium sized bowl and lightly stir together.
In a mason jar, add the red wine vinegar, dried oregano, and minced garlic Add in the salt and pepper (to taste preference). Add in olive oil. Shake together until ingredients are combined.
Pour the dressing over the cooked quinoa that has COMPLETELY cooled. (Add dressing to preference; you may not want to add it all)
Toss the rest of the vegetables in with the quinoa.
When ready to serve, top the salad with crumbled feta cheese. Squeeze fresh lemon over the salad if desired.
