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! 

Ingredients:

- 1 cup cooked quinoa

- 1 cucumber

- 1 cup cherry tomatoes

  2. Add into bowl with cooked quinoa, feta and oregano.
  3. Mix the ingredients for the dressing into a mason jar and shake until incorporated.
