Directions

  1. Rinse the quinoa thoroughly in a fine mesh strainer. Drain and place it in a heavy pan. Heat, stirring constantly until the grains separate and begin to brown.
  2. Add 1 1 /4 pints water and the salt and bring to the boil, stirring. Reduce the heat and cook for 15 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed. Transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk together the lemon juice and 1 tbsp of the oil in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. Place the remaining oil, cucumber, onion, parsley, and mint in a separate, larger bowl. Add the quinoa and the lemon and oil dressing and toss. Sprinkle with the feta cheese and olives. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
