Lemon Quinoa Salad
1 cup dry quinoa, cooked and cooled
Your choice of veggies...I used...
1 small zucchini, quartered and sliced
2 ears sweet corn, cut off cob and cooked
15 grape tomatoes, quartered
salt & pepper
1/2 cup feta
1 Tablespoon lemon zest
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons honey
1 garlic clove, microplaned or finely minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients for the Lemon Vinaigrette in a jar or bowl, then shake or whisk to combine and set aside.
Add all of your choice of veggies and the cooked, cooled quinoa to a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Add vinaigrette, feta cheese, and basil to the bowl. Stir well, taste, and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
