Greek Quinoa Salad

Greek Quinoa Salad (gluten-free) | The Baking Beauties
Yum! If I had the ingredients on hand, I’d make this Greek Quinoa Salad again. But, I don’t have any feta cheese. Or quinoa right now either. Shoot, guess I’ll just have to be patient and wait a little longer.  We (read “the adults”) really loved this salad. I can’t wait until the summer, when I know I will make it more often. It is a great cold salad, although I’m sure if you were impatient, you could eat it warm as well. :)
