Quinoa Salad with Olives, Garden Veggies and Herbs

Pairs with Winery Selection Sauvignon Blanc or Hahn SLH Pinot Gris

Serves 4-6



In a bowl or jar – combine shallot, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper – whisk or shake well then slowly whisk or shake in the olive oil. Taste and adjust if needed.

This salad is a great year round salad and you can substitute whatever is in season and fresh. It is quick and yummy. The dressing can be simple – lemon juice and olive oil or you can make a vinaigrette of your choice.

In a medium pot with lid bring 2 cups water and 1/2 tsp salt to boil. Then add the quinoa – reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit 5 minutes. Place quinoa in a bowl and fluff with fork – set aside to cool.

Prepare all other ingredients. Make dressing. When quinoa is cool add vegetables, almonds, feta, zest and dressing. Toss together until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning to your taste.
