Description

This Mediterranean quinoa salad is fresh, easy, and the perfect healthy lunch loaded with flavor.


Ingredients

Scale

3 cups cooked quinoa, cooled

1 1/2 cups assorted cherry tomatoes, halved

8 radishes, trimmed and quartered

1/2 cup of vegan or regular feta

1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped

3 tbsp. fresh oregano, chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 avocado, pitted and cut into cubes


Instructions

Into a large bowl, combine all the ingredients apart from the avocado and stir till combined.

You can store it in the refrigerator in individual containers or 1 large container.

When serving, serve with the desired amount of avocado on top or tossed into your serving size. I recommend 1 avocado for 4 servings.

Notes

This salad will last up to 5 days in a tightly sealed container in the fridge.

Be sure to only add the avocado when serving/eating.  If you’re doing meal prep style then add just before you eat it.

You can add ingredients like olives, capers, bell peppers, or cucumber too! Have fun with this salad!
