I wanted to make a seasonal salad this weekend and decided on Strawberry Feta Quinoa Salad because I couldn’t pass up the $1.79/carton. What a deal!
I had a hard time creating a dressing for this salad, and decided to keep it light. Most of the flavor comes from the basil and feta, with a touch of honey.
Strawberry Feta Quinoa Salad
-1C quinoa, dry
-2C sliced strawberries
-Crumbled Feta Cheese, to taste (I probably used 1/3C)
-1T basil, fresh or dry
-1/2C chopped walnuts
-1T olive oil
1. In a small pot, bring 1C quinoa and 2C water to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for about 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Refrigerate for about an hour or until room temperature.
2. In a large bowl or tupperware, mix together quinoa, sliced strawberries, feta cheese, chopped walnuts, and basil. Then drizzle on honey and olive oil. Toss
3. Serve cold or at room temperature!
I added a little bit of aged balsamic to my serving. Delicious.
How cute is this cup? It was actually a little flower pot that we gave my mom for mothers day.
