I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Recipe: Greek Quinoa Salad

I snagged this recipe form With Style & Grace and quickly whipped it up one Sunday to store in my fridge for the week. It was quick and easy and can serve as an entire meal or as a side dish. I added tuna to mine for the protein but I wouldn't suggest it, it kind of overpowered the flavor of the salad. 

1 1/2 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped Kalamata olives
1/3 cup chopped red onion
2 chopped green onions
1 lemon
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 minced garlic cloves
salt and pepper
1/2 cup feta cheese
