This Greek Quinoa Salad Recipe is filling and flavor packed!

The thing with salads, is they sometime leave you…well…HUNGRY! That’s not the case today with this Greek Quinoa Salad. There are tons of add-ins that give the salad not only great texture and flavor, but also fill you up.

What’s so great about this quinoa salad recipe, is that it can be served warm OR chilled! You can add in all the ingredients I listed in the recipe, OR get creative and add some things you like as well. I added chicken into my salad, because my boys love chicken recipes…but you can easily make this a vegetarian dish, but omitting the chicken!

Bob's Red Mill Quinoa is great in my quinoa salad recipe

I LOVE Bob’s Red Mill Quinoa, which is what I used in this quinoa salad recipe. They thoroughly rinse their quinoa and air dry it to remove the naturally occurring bitter saponins you taste in other quinoas. Bob’s Red Mill products are also certified Kosher, and made with ingredients grown from non-GMO seeds. So, beyond being flavorful, I feel good about the ingredients that I use to feed my family.

This Greek Quinoa Salad is a completely balanced, and delicious meal alone, or a fantastic side dish or lunch!Whole grain, gluten free quinoa has a nutty flavor, and is a good source of iron and offers high-quality protein, which I love. I have actually prepped this on Sunday and had it throughout the week, which is a great time saver!

Greek Salad Dressing on top of my quinoa salad

I top my quinoa salad with my favorite Greek Salad Dressing!

The great thing about this recipe, is you can present it like I have in the pictures, on a pretty platter for dinner, OR you can mix everything in a bowl, along with your Greek Dressing and serve it that way..which I have to say is what I do most of the time!

    Great recipe! Recently I have started diet. In which I have to eat raw veggies, at least two times in a day. I am so bored to eat like old way. But adding quinoa with added Greek Salad Dressing would made this enrich in a taste and I am sure I will be ate this without any complain.
