Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

This bright and colorful quinoa salad is a great summertime recipe.

If you love cucumbers, tomatoes and feta, this cold salad is the perfect complement to any meal or gathering. The quinoa and light yet full-flavored homemade red wine vinegar dressing can be made ahead for ease when serving.

Some ways to “reinvent” your leftover Mediterranean Quinoa Salad:

  • Serve it with eggs: We stumbled upon this one by accident and we’re so glad we did. Make two sunny-side up eggs (per person) and serve them with leftover quinoa salad, topped with a few avocado slices. It’s so simple and hands down one of the best breakfasts EVER!
  • Add shrimp or chicken and enjoy the leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch!
  • A quick and easy wrap: Add a scoop of leftover quinoa salad onto a wrap, top with spinach, protein of choice, roll it up (wrap style) and enjoy!
