Apple Feta Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Walnuts

 

INGREDIENTS
1 cup dry quinoa
1 or 2 apples, skinned and chopped
1 orange, peeled
3 green onions, bulbs discarded, green parts chopped
Handful of walnuts, chopped
Handful of dried cranberries
Feta cheese crumbles
Juice from 1-2 lemons (depending on how strong you want the citrus flavor)
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS


1. Cook the quinoa. To do so, bring 2 cups water to a boil, add in 1 cup dry quinoa, reduce to a simmer for about 15 mins until water has been absorbed.

2. When the quinoa is cooked, stir in the olive oil and lemon juice.

3. Skin and chop up an apple or two, depending on preference. Peel the orange, separate each wedge and remove the clear/white casing. Chop the wedges into chunks. Chop up the green onions. Coarsely chop a handful of walnuts.

4.Mix all your “choppings” into the quinoa along with a handful of dried cranberries.

5.Top with desired amount of feta cheese crumbles and serve.
