Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, chopped

  • ¼ cup red onion, chopped
  • ½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes. Turn heat off and let quinoa stand for 5 additional minutes, covered. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add vinegar, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and oregano; set aside and let cool to room temperature.
  2. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, feta cheese, lemon juice, and remaining olive oil to quinoa. Toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
