Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

(posted by Emily)

Another Sunday, another day of meal prep! We decided on Swiss chard wraps again this week, but wanted to try a new filling. I put together a quick quinoa salad, which could probably be served on its own. Easy to put together, easy to pack!

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
Prep time: 15 minutes

Salad base:
1 1/2 cup quinoa (measured when uncooked), cooked
1 cup cucumber, diced
1 medium tomato, chopped (or more if you like tomato!)
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
5-6 fresh basil leaves, shredded and diced

4 tbs olive oil (1/4 cup)
6 tbs apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp organo
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Prep the salad ingredients and add them to a large bowl. Shake dressing ingredients to combine, and then drizzle over the quinoa mixture. Stir and mix well, then refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Serve in Swiss chard or collard green wraps, or as a side dish.

We hope you enjoy!
