Mediterranean Inspired Quinoa Salad

Enjoy this mouthwatering kitchen-tested recipe packaged as 5-Ingredient called Mediterranean Inspired Quinoa Salad.

This quick and easy side dish pairs the bold Mediterranean flavors of lime, Feta cheese, Kalamata olives, and fresh parsley against the subtle backdrop of quinoa. Thanks to the naturally salty flavors of the olive brine and Feta cheese, this dish doesn’t need any added sodium to help balance the flavors. However, for best results, you’ll want to make this dish in advance to give the flavors a chance to blend.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: approximately 20 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1 c. quinoa, uncooked
2 limes, zest and juice
4 oz. Feta cheese, crumbed
2 oz. Kalamata olives, chopped, with brine
