Continue your healthy 2017 with Bellisari's Sweet Tomato Fennel & Quinoa Cucumber Feta Salad!
4 cups water
2 tsp kosher salt
2 cups quinoa
1/2 medium English cucumber, halved lengthwise, small dice (about 1 1/4 cups)
1/2 jar Bellisari's Calabrian and Sweet Tomato Fennel Spread
8oz feta cheese
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
Combine water and salt in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, rinse the quinoa. Add the quinoa to the boiling water and stir briefly. When it returns to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer gently until quinoa absorbs the liquid and grains are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
When quinoa is ready, stir in remaining ingredients until well combined. Taste, adjust seasoning, as needed, and serve. Add black olives if desired.
