Salad

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Have you heard of quinoa before? I had heard of it but surprisingly never made it in my own kitchen. I had no idea what I was missing! Quinoa is high in protein, fiber, magnesium and iron. It’s also gluten-free, has a low glycemic index compared to other whole grains and the texture is very similar to rice or couscous. This is just one of the miracle foods that I learned about in the book. This Mediterranean Quinoa Salad is another great recipe from the book, Must Have Been Something I Ate. A quick, healthy, protein packed side dish that is perfect for summer. This refreshing summer salad can be made ahead of time and tastes best cold. Quinoa is tossed with crunchy vegetables, kalamata olives, feta cheese and herbs making this salad a refreshing side dish for your summer table.
