Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

A mediterranean quinoa salad with artichokes, olives and red pepper. A satisfying and filling quinoa salad.


  • Salad:
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 red pepper
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 20 kalamata olives
  • 1 cup of marinated artichoke hearts
  • 4 scallions – green part only
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 tbs sunflower seeds
  • Dressing:
  • 6 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Rinse quinoa and cook as per package instructions. I like to add a veggie bullion cube. Once finished cooking, turn quinoa out on to baking sheet to cool.
  2. Finely chop red pepper, olives and celery and add to a bowl.
  3. Give marinated artichoke hearts a rough chop and add to the bowl.
  4. Use the green part of the scallions only – discard white part. Chop scallions thinly and add to the bowl.
  5. Add feta cheese and sunflower seeds.
  6. Whisk olive oil, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper together.
  7. Pour dressing over salad and toss to combine.
