Insta Meals Monday: Quinoa Greek Salad

A little late today, but that's what happens when you're being spoiled my your mama! This is one of my absolute favorite meals for lunch or dinner. It's great leftover and SO delish. It's also super simple. (Somehow I deleted my original Instagram photo so this is a raw version). 

The Recipe: Quinoa Greek Salad

What you need:
3 c of cooked quinoa
1 c cooked garbanzo beans (can also use canned)
1/4 c feta
1/2 - 1 c grape tomatoes (chopped)
1/4 c kalamata olives
2 shakes garlic powder
5 big shakes (or to taste) Rustic Tuscan Seasoning (from Costco)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cap full lemon juice 

Prepare quinoa according to directions (we use a rice cooker). Allow to cool and place 3 cups of quinoa in a large bowl. Add garbanzo beans, feta, tomatoes and olives. Shake in Rustic Tuscan Seasoning and garlic powder, then pour in olive oil and lemon juice. Stir until combined. Add more lemon juice or olive oil to your liking. 

Chill for 20 minutes or serve immediately. Can also be served over a bed of lettuce or spinach. We love it both ways.

Try not to eat it all at once, but if you do, just know you aren't alone!
