Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Time for another dose of quinoa! I actually made this one for Teeners and fam when I was in Seattle and I believe is went over pretty well. Spreading the word about quinoa! This one reminds me of a real Greek salad plus some quinoa.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

1 1/2c quinoa
1 lb chicken tenderloins, cut in very small pieces
2T Greek salad dressing
1 cucumber, diced
1 container cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4c red onion, diced
1 pkg feta cheese
1/2c olive oil
2T lemon juice
freshly ground pepper

Thoroughly rinse quinoa. Place in sauce pan, add 3c water. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for 15 min or until there is no water remaining. Fluff the quinoa with a fork and set aside to cool.

Place the Greek dressing and chicken in a skillet. Saute until thoroughly cooked through.

Combine cucumber, tomatoes, onion, and feta cheese in a large bowl.

In a small bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Mix the quinoa and chicken into the large bowl. Pour olive oil mixture over the salad and toss to coat. Enjoy!
