Healthy and delicious quinoa salad that truly fills you up. It's a perfect side or meal on it's own. I recommend making a large bowl of it at the start of the week so you have the healthy option on hand whenever you're having naughty cravings or you're on the run. Read on to find out how to make this simple and fresh yumminess.

*        *       *
Red Quinoa
Baby Spinach leaves
Red Onion
Basil Feta Cheese
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Start of by cooking up 1 part red quinoa with 2 parts water; On a high flame until boiling, then reduce heat and cover. 

As it cooks you can prep your vegetables; fresh and juicy tomatoes, red onion and also crumble up some feta cheese, I recommend a basil infused selection and using a grater. You can chop the feta into chunks but what I like most about this dish is that every bite is the same. 
When the quinoa has sat in the fridge and cooled down toss the ingredients together and serve on a bed of baby spinach, or mix the leaves in. Drizzle with olive oil for a simple dressing and season to taste.

 I honestly give this dish 10/10, it is just so good.
