Ingredients
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups cooked chicken shredded or diced
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 6 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
Dressing
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions
Dressing
  1. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix with a whisk. 

  2. In a medium saucepan, boil the water. 
    Rinse the cup of quinoa in a fine mesh sieve under cold water until the water runs clear. Drain well.

  3. Add to boiling water. Reduce heat to simmer and cover. Cook until the germs have spiraled out of each grain, about 15 minutes.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, chopped peppers, cucumber, onion, feta, and parsley. Mix well.

  5. Add the cooked quinoa to the bowl and toss gently. 

  6. Mix dressing well again and pour over salad.
    Toss well to coat.
