A Greek quinoa salad that’s full of vegetables

How to make it

When it comes to salads, it’s important to have different textures to make the salad more exciting. The other important piece is to chop everything in a uniform way. You don’t want some vegetables 3 times the size of others, so it’s important to cut everything in a consistent way.

A lot of the flavour comes from cooking the quinoa in vegetable broth, so be sure not to miss this step! Alternatively, you could cook your quinoa in water, but in that case you’ll have to add some seasoning at the end.
