I have blogged about my Greek salad before. I have made it as is, or tossed in some pasta to make Greek pasta salad. This time I added cooked quinoa to the mix. Quinoa is pronounced keen-wa, and contrary to popular belief it's a seed, not a grain. Quinoa is an great source of fiber, protein and is also gluten-free. To make it you simmer one part quinoa to two parts water for 15-20 minutes. I used half a cup of uncooked quinoa which resulted in just over a cup of cooked quinoa. If you are adding quinoa to my Greek salad, use a bit more olive oil and lemon juice than what the recipe calls for.
