I made this salad yesterday for the bbq that Chad and I hosted. It was a simple bbq with hamburgers and hot dogs, chips and dip, but not much more. So I thought I would make something with veggies and decided on this salad. All I can say is that I was eating it all day.
- 2 Cups Quinoa
- 4 Cups chicken stock
- 1 bunch watercress
- 1 yellow pepper chopped
- 1/2 red onion chopped
- 1 cucumber chopped
- 5 oz. crumbled feta cheese
- about 1 cup grape tomatoes chopped
- about 1 cup toasted pine nuts.
- **balsamic viniagrete**
Rinse quinoa and toast in a dry skillet. Cook quinoa according to package directions and set aside to cool. Wash and chop all veggies and throw them into a bowl with pine nuts. Add cooled quinoa and toss with vinaigrette. Simple and delicious!
**I have no amounts for the vinaigrette but this is what I combined and whisked together**
