Mediterranean Inspired Vegan & Gluten Free Quinoa Salad

Our Friday Giveaway this week was greek inspired quinoa salad that a friend brought over for dinner a few weeks back that was simply delicious, fresh, balanced and utilizes the veggies that are coming out of everyone's gardens right now. 

2 medium cucumbers sliced and quartered
1 pink of tomatoes sliced
6 fresh basil leaves minced
1/3 cup minced red onions 
1/3 cup of sliced Kalamata olives
5-6 tablespoons of homemade vinegerette (1:1 ratio of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dash of salt and pepper, 1 tsp of raw honey and 1/2 tsp of italian seasonings)
Optional: 1/2 cup of crumbled Feta Cheese
Mix salad together. Prepare 1 cup of uncooked quinoa (yields around 2 cups cooked) and cool in the fridge.
Mix quinoa and veggie salad together. Best served after an extra 30-60 minutes in the fridge and letting the flavors blend well. 

It's a healthy vegan and gluten free blend of veggies, plant based protein, fiber and healthy fats with a wonderfully fresh Mediterranean flavor. Enjoy!
