I loved this! I did the recipe exactly as stated but only made half the Quinoa and it was amazing. Plenty of Quinoa and if I had put the whole amount in it would have been way too much. Will make again
Loved it! With that in mind, here are my recs to improve and lighten it for those who watch their weight. Like others have said, I reduced the (combo of red & white) quinoa by half but then only used a half of that! It was perfect. I added avocado (1/2) and scallions (2).I minced the shallot with the mint and mixed those with the dressing and added in oregano- classic Greek seasoning! I mixed the veggies alone with the dressing first and then added in the quinoa after. I left out the feta- it wasn't necessary. I used red wine vinegar as others suggested- it was great. To add protein on top I grilled salmon on a plank which I lightly seasoned. Sliced it on top.All good!
Definitely not a quick recipe but delicious. I doubled the dressing and did marinate the veggies for a few hours before combining with quinoa. Will next time make a day in advance as the flavor profile really kicked in the next day.
This salad is amazing! I followed the recipe exactly and all the ingredients really blend well together and I love the crunch! This can be eaten alone for a nice lunch or for dinner with chicken, etc. I wouldn't change anything about it.
