Author: Shoot the Cook
  • 1 + 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa
  • 20-25 (200g) cherries, halved
  • 1 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1/3 cup spring onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (150 g) feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup (20 g) mint leaves, chopped
Lime Dressing
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup virgin olive oil
  • 1 juiced, plus extra to taste
  1. Rinse the quinoa in a mesh colander under running water, then place it on a saucepan and pour in 3 cups of water and a pinch of salt. Bring it to a boil, then simmer covered for 10'. Remove from the heat and leave covered for a further 5'. Transfer the quinoa to a big bowl and fluff the quinoa with a fork.

  2. For the Lime Dressing shake all the ingredients in a jar, or whisk together.

  3. Once the quinoa is cool, toss in the rest of your ingredients. Add the dressing and stir to combine.

  4. Serve on the bowls with some more crumbled feta and garnish with mint leaves.

Recipe Notes

*Add more or less feta cheese to taste.

*This salad tastes even better the next day, as the flavours will have combined beautifully.
