Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Dee Stillwell


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.

Directions Step-By-Step

Bring chicken broth to a boil in 1 quart saucepan. add quinoa, cover and simmer for 15-30 minutes. Some like it cooked less. I prefer it cooked 30 minutes. If you do this add an extra 1/2 cup liquid. Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool.
Chop all veggies and when quinoa is cool, assemble the salad. Mix all ingerdients together and refrigerate several hours before serving. Enjoy!
