Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa uncooked
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries feel free to add more!
  • 1/4 cup red onion thinly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 3 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 T olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa according to package directions.
  • Slice and chop ingredients and set aside.
  • When quinoa is fully cooked, toss it over the spinach in a large mixing bowl and allow for the spinach to wilt as you stir.
  • Add onion, garlic, balsamic, oil, cilantro, salt, and pepper and stir.
  • Stir in feta and strawberries.
  • Chill for about 20-30 minutes before eating. (Unless you are like me, I ate it from the mixing bowl!)

Notes

I have tried this recipe now with fresh cilantro and fresh parsley. The reason I used cilantro the first time is because I didn't have any at home. Either tastes quite delicious so if you want to do the parsley instead of cilantro, go for it!
