As a stay at home mom, I struggle to get motivated to eat more than just chicken nuggets and peas for lunch. Often times I make myself a salad, but I really need some protein. Humm…when two kids are hunger and ready for naps, I don’t have a ton of time to cook, so I need something easy.
Once again, enter quinoa. This is a nice fresh salad with lots of veggies.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
- 1 cup cooked Quinoa
- 1/2 cucumber sliced and quartered
- 1 tomato sliced
- Feta Cheese
- 1/2 red pepper diced
- Black Olives
- Greek Salad Dressing
- I recommend cooking Quinoa in bulk before creating this salad. It keeps well in the fridge and makes throwing this salad together super quick. For info on cooking Quinoa, click here.
- Combine elements and toss. Top with crumbled feta. For a milder version, use extra virgin olive oil instead of the Greek Dressing.
Again, a super simple salad. A great go-to is filling and fresh and delicious.
I hope you enjoy it!
