Recipe: Quinoa Salad

It's been a while since I've posted a recipe… we've been in a bit of a rut, a happy rut with things like avocado sandwiches and black bean tacos, but still a rut. So last week I tried something new. On a bit of a whim, I broke free from my standard greek salad recipe and combined it with a chick pea salad recipe. I never, ever have whims when cooking (baking, yes - but cooking, no) and I don't break free from following a recipe exactly (unless I am missing ingredients, in which case I just leave them out). I would say my cooking is usually only mediocre (which I don't get because I follow the recipes exactly), but this turned out really well. So well that it may work itself into the rut rotation.

Quinoa (uncooked)
Cucumber (sliced)
Cherry tomatoes (halved)
Avocado (little pieces)
Chick peas
Feta cheese
Italian dressing

Cook quinoa and let cool. Mix with other ingredients.
