Get all the flavours of a traditional Greek salad with the addition of a protein-packed gluten-free grain in this healthy Greek quinoa salad.
If you’ve been following this Blog for a while the you’ll know about my love affair with quinoa. One taste of this wholesome gluten-free grain was all it took to fall head over heels in love with it. Besides the fact that it is super nutritious, it’s also packed with protein, which makes it an ideal grain to consume for vegetarians who are lacking protein in their diets. The quinoa recipes I’ve prepared are countless, and it never ceases to amaze me how this grain continues to inspire new recipes, for example this quinoa-based rendition of traditional Greek salad. It has all the fixings of an authentic Greek salad; tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, onions, feta cheese, and so on, but with a heartier texture. Quinoa is the perfect grain to use as a blank canvas is so many recipes as it easily absorbs all the flavours it’s combined with. This refreshing and healthy Greek quinoa salad tastes delicious served cooled or at room temperature, and the best part is it tastes even better the longer it sits. What does that mean? Healthy, ready-to-serve lunches or dinners for days, to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, packed up in school lunches or a healthy lunch option at work.
