Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 green or red pepper, finely diced
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1/2 cup feta
  • 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds or pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp. chopped mint
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch salt/pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Instructions

  1. Cook quinoa according to directions.
  2. Let cool completely. I like to cook my quinoa on the stove, keep covered and remove from heat. Let sit for an hour until completely cooled, fork to fluff the quinoa kernels.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cucumber, pepper, pomegranate arils, feta (if using), toasted nuts, and mint.
  4. Whisk together the minced garlic clove, lemon, olive oil and pinch salt/pepper.
  5. Toss to combine.
  6. I love this at room temperature but feel free to pop in the fridge for an hour or two.
