Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, garlic and some salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil just until emulsified. Let sit at room temperature while you prepare the salad to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. Rinse the quinoa in a strainer until the water runs clear. Combine the quinoa with salted water and cook about 15 minutes; drain any remaining water that has not been absorbed.
  3. Transfer quinoa to a bowl, fluff with a fork and let it sit for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Add the tomatoes, olives, green onions, cherry peppers, onions, cucumbers and dressing and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours before serving. The longer it sits the better the flavor.
  4. Just before serving, transfer to a platter and sprinkle feta cheese on top.
