Quinoa Salad with Cherry Tomatoes and Cucumbers

Quinoa salad with cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.  An easy, colorful, summer salad that is the perfect side dish or main meal on a hot day.  It features quinoa, fresh summer veggies, peppery arugula and feta cheese. 






  1. Cook quinoa as per the package instructions.  Let cool slightly when done.
  2. Roughly chop arugula and add to a large bowl.
  3. Slice cherry tomatoes in half and add to the bowl.
  4. Dice cucumber and add to the bowl.
  5. Dice feta cheese and add to the bowl.
  6. Mince red onion and add to the bowl.
  7. Add cooked quinoa and walnuts to the bowl.
  8. Whisk olive oil, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, black pepper and salt together.
  9. Toss salad with dressing and serve.


Make sure to rinse your quinoa before cooking.  This will remove any bitter taste.

If you pre-cook the quinoa, it will keep in the fridge for about a week.

I like to give my greens a rough chop, it makes them much easier to eat.
