Expert Tips

Like any good Peruvian, I grew up enjoying quinoa, so I'm very happy that now I can find it anywhere I go in California. I always try to add this nutritious ingredient to my families diet. For example, this quinoa salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese is one that I like to prepare for my sons summer camp lunchbox. It's very easy to prepare and is simply delicious.

Directions

  • 1 Combine the quinoa and water in a medium sized pot. Let boil until all the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 2 Transfer the cooked quinoa into a baking tray and spread evenly, this will help it cool quickly. Once the quinoa is cool, place in a medium bowl and add the tomatoes, cucumbers, olives and feta cheese. Mix softly.
  • 3 For a dressing, mix olive oil, red vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper. Serve over the salad and mix evenly.
