Cooking Your Quinoa: using twice as much water as quinoa, bring water to a boil over high heat. Once the water boils, immediately reduce heat to medium-low. Cover the pot and simmer until the quinoa absorbs all of the water and is tender. This should take about 15-20 minutes. If the quinoa still looks wet, continue to cook, checking every 5-minutes.
Place cooked quinoa and green veggies into a salad bowl and toss using a pair of tongs OR salad spoons. Lightly toast seeds in a fry pan using a small amount of spray oil, then toss into salad mix. Lastly, crumble feta on top of your salad and serve.
Tip: pair with JCN skewer kebabs for a complete and delicious summer meal that is sure to be a hit at your next BBQ!
