Quinoa Salad with Watermelon and Feta

Submitted by: SCHILDRESS1


Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    Quinoa 1 1/2 cup

    For the dressing:
    3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
    2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1/3 cup finely chopped sweet onion, such as vidalia
    cup extra virgin olive oil
    Salt and pepper

    For the salad:
    cup crumbled feta
    1 cups watermelon, diced
    3-4 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
    Lemon zest, to taste

Tips

This is the best day that is prepared. I think the watermelon gets a little weird tasting the next day. It's still good.. but not as fresh tasting.


Directions

Rinse the quinoa well and strain off excess water. Cook according to the package directions. Let cool to room temperature. Store and refrigerate if not using right away.

To make the dressing, combine the vinegar, lemon juice, and onion in a small bowl or jar. Mix well. Add in the olive oil and whisk well to emulsify the dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In a medium bowl, combine the cooked quinoa with the feta, watermelon, and parsley. Add lemon zest, salt and pepper to taste. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
