Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

This is a salad recipe from the Betty Crocker email I get. I added the bell pepper and changed it to quinoa instead of couscous because of the health benefits. It is a refreshing main dish salad or can be served as a side dish. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I have tried this with the Kalamata olives and am not a fan so now I make it with black olives. This is not my own picture but I will add one when I make this again.
