Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

By Chef Laura at Home

Technically, quinoa is not a grain, it's a seed. Quinoa is a complete protein containing all 8 essential amino acids, perfect for vegetarians.


  • 4 cup quinoa, cooked

  • 1 lemon zested

  • 4 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), chopped

  • 4 Tbsp kalamata olives, chopped

  • 4 Tbsp capers (rinsed and drained)

  • 2 Tbsp parsley, minced

  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled


  1. Combine the lemon zest, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, parsley and feta cheese in a bowl, stir to combine.

  2. Add the cooked quinoa once it is room temperature or has been chilled in the refrigerator, stir to combine. I don't find that this recipe needs salt & pepper, the capers make it salty.
