Greek quinoa salad

Wow, this was one of those nights where I wanted to make something new with quinoa, because it had been too long, but I wasn’t sure what to do with it. So I took a good look around the kitchen and after seeing both feta and olives, I went for greek style. Honestly, it was so much better than I had hoped for. It will go on my permanent list of easy, quick, healthy tasty foods. Next time I may add some grilled chicken, hungry husband would appreciate that.
