Wonderfully fresh tasting summer salad with quinoa, chickpeas, cucumbers, tomatoes and corn topped with tangy feta cheese!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SALAD:
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 1-½ cup Water
  • 1 cup Canned Chickpeas, Rinsed And Drained
  • 1 cup Canned Corn Kernels
  • 1 whole English (hothouse) Cucumber, Small Diced
  • 2 whole Tomatoes, Diced
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Diced
  • ¼ cups Parsley, Chopped
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • ½ cups Feta Cheese, Crumbled

  • ¼ cups Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Mustard
  • ½ teaspoons Mayonnaise

Preparation

Rinse the quinoa under cold water for a couple of minutes and place in a pot with 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to low.
