Quinoa Salad

March 11, 2022

This recipe stretches across the globe to meld international flavors. Quinoa is a high protein, South American grain. We've combined it with ingredients that you'd find in a Mediterranean salad, including our Greek Herbs Blend.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 large cucumber, diced (~2-3 cups)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced (~2-3 cups)
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • ⅓ cup light or extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (~1-2 lemons)
  • 1½ Tbsp Stuart's Spices Greek Herbs
  • black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Bring two cups of water to a boil on the stove.
  2. Add the quinoa and reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until tender and the water has been absorbed, ~15 minutes
  3. Let cool (or follow quinoa package directions if different).
  4. Toss the diced cucumber, tomatoes, and garbanzo beans into the quinoa.
  5. Mix together the Greek Herbs, black pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil. Blend well. Pour over salad and mix well.
  6. Place in refrigerator to cool. May be made a day in advance.

Tips

This salad works equally well using bulgur or couscous in place of quinoa.
