  • 3/4 cup(s) quinoa uncooked
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 1/4 cup(s) red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) sugar
  • 2-3 clove(s) garlic crushed
  • 1/2 cup(s) olive oil
  • 1 cucumber peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1 red onion halved and sliced thinly
  • 2 cup(s) grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 cup(s) fresh asparagus (optional) tough ends trimmed off, 1" lengths
  • 4 ounce(s) feta cheese crumbled


  1. Prepare quinoa in water according to package directions. Set aside to cool (hot quinoa will cook the vegetables).

  2. Mix sugar into vinegar until dissolved. Add garlic and olive oil, and whisk to make dressing. Add dressing to cooled quinoa.

  3. Add chopped vegetables to quinoa and dressing. Mix thoroughly and top with crumbled feta cheese. This can be served at room temperature or chilled.

  4. This packs well for individual servings and will keep for several days in the refrigerator.
