Quinoa Greek Salad 
Serves 4-6

Ingredients:
1 cup of quinoa, rinsed
2 cups of vegetable broth
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup of raw spinach, chopped
¼ cup parsley, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
dash lemon zest
½ cup kalamata olives
3 ounces of raw feta cheese, grated
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar

Directions:
Put the quinoa and the vegetable broth in a large stock pot and boil uncovered for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and leave on the stovetop for about 5-10 minutes more. While quinoa is setting, combine the chopped spinach, tomato, parsley and lemon zest together in a separate bowl. Drain any remaining liquid from the quinoa and then place the spinach mixture over it and cover until spinach slightly wilts—about 5 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the extra virgin olive oil, raw apple cider vinegar and garlic, and toss with the quinoa salad mixture. Top with feta cheese and kalamata olives. Serve.
