Quinoa With Tomato, Cucumbers, Feta, and Mint

10 Sep

Another recipe to use up fresh box veggies! Every week along with our veggies we get a packet of recipes to go along with the veggies for that week! This recipe was in the packet. Yum! This was delicious. The original called for Israeli couscous which I was out of so quinoa it was yum yum yum!!
Served this with some mini meatloafs. Forgot to add the cheddar in the meatloafs this time and didn’t even notice!

Kosher salt
1 cup Quinoa
2 cups cucumber, peeled and finely diced

1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh mint

1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest

Cook quinoa according to directions.
Pour the quinoa into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the cucumber, tomatoes, and mint.
In a small bowl, mix the oil, lemon juice and zest, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Stir in the feta. Add the feta mixture to the couscous, season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, and mix well. Transfer to a serving bowl.
