This week on Simply Sweet Allison we make a refreshing and healthy quinoa salad with all of your favorite Mediterranean ingredients.
I love all types of Greek food. My mom and I always used to whip up this easy quinoa salad to be paired with grilled chicken or even as a snack on a warm day. It is very healthy and fresh, so you won't have to feel guilty about eating most of it in one sitting, like I do!

- 1 cucumber
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 red onion
