Healthy Greek Style Chickpea and Quinoa Salad

Submitted by: KBOONE04


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    For salad:
    1 and ½ cups cooked chickpeas (½ cup dried)
    2 cups cooked quinoa (2/3 cup dried)
    ½ red onion, diced small
    ½ large cucumber (or 1 small), diced small
    ½ cup crumbled feta cheese (raw, from sheep or goat’s milk, tastes best)
    ½ cup chopped kalamata olives
    Red Onion (opt
    Cilantro (1/3 C)
    chicken broth (for quinoa)

    Dressing
    Juice of one lemon (about 4 tablespoons)
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    2 cloves garlic, minced, pressed or grated
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

Rinse quinoa well in running water to remove any bitterness. Bring a pot of water to the boil and add quinoa. Cover and cook, just simmering for about 25 minutes until the quinoa is cooked. Drain and allow to cool a bit.

Toss chickpeas, quinoa, onion, cucumber, cheese, olives, and cilantro together in a large bowl.

Whisk garlic, lemon, mustard and olive oil together, or shake it all together in a jar. Add a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper.

Toss the chickpea and quinoa mixture with the dressing until well-combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
