greek quinoa quick meal

This past weekend I went out of town for my cousin’s wedding shower.  When left to his own devices, Shaye won’t cook for himself so I stocked the refrigerator with this quick meal.  Preparation is key to following a healthy diet!

When you have good food in the house you eat good food!

This would be a great recipe to prepare on the weekend and have ready for those busy weeknights when the last thing you feel like doing is cooking a meal.  Pair this salad with grilled chicken, fish or slice an avocado on top for a vegetarian version.  You could even just dump it on top of a bed of greens or yet, eat it straight out of the mason jar!
