There is something about Greek flavors that I am so in love with. As a kid, my dad always made this salad that he called “Indian Salad” (not sure why), but we also called it Greek Salad. It was green lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, peppers and feta cheese – and some sort of dressing that I can’t remember. I was smitten with feta cheese very early on.
As far as quinoa, I discovered this about four years ago when I declared myself gluten-intolerant, even though I wasn’t – I think I was being over dramatic. However, I will say that abstaining from gluten did make me feel pretty good for a while. Then that wore off, and I went back to real ass bread.
Speaking of quinoa, did you know that it’s a “pseudocereal”, and related to tumbleweeds?
I know, right?
Nevertheless – it’s really good stuff.
This salad is incorporating the Greek salad concept and combining it with quinoa. People love this stuff right now. You see it everywhere, in muffins, in soups, cookies…hell I even saw where someone made a pizza crust out of it.
What a versatile little “pseudocereal”.
Here’s your printable –
Oh, and the more feta, the better. You can always add more than my recipe.
I don’t mind.
Your quinoa would ask you to.
