Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 cup corn, frozen
  • 4 stalk green onion
  • 2 medium carrot
  • 3/4 cup black olives, canned
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dill weed, fresh
  • 2 tablespoon mint, fresh

Dressing

  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vinegar, balsamic

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa to desired tenderness as directed on package (longer cooking times result in a softer texture). Cool completely.
  • Chop sun-dried tomatoes and thaw corn.
  • Chop onions and grate carrots; add to a large bowl along with sun-dried tomatoes, thawed corn, and remaining salad ingredients. Set aside.
  • Whisk together the olive oil and vinegar, then add to salad and toss to coat evenly.
  • Once quinoa has cooled, add to salad and toss once more (or leave the ingredients separate to be mixed when eaten). Serve at room temperature or chilled.
