Directions

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions, adding the salt.
  2. Meanwhile, combine cucumber, drained tomatoes, olives, cheese and onion in large bowl; set aside.

Cook's Tip

Quinoa typically is found in the rice and pasta section of supermarkets. Rinse well before cooking to remove the natural bitter coating, if it is not pre-washed. Quinoa can be cooked the day before and stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, if desired.

This recipe was great until I added the canned tomatoes. It did say to drain them, but I did not drain them well enough. I had my husband taste as each ingredient was added and until then we loved it. No problem, will use fresh tomatoes next time! Still ate it all up! Very light and healthy!

This Quinoa recipe is wholesome, nutritious and requires little time and effort. Family members can easily learn to enjoy this whole, healthy, nutrient rich grain, which is better than pasta and other package foods. I give this recipe a four (4) rating.
