Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

I recently enjoyed this mediterranean quinoa salad while on a trip to Santa Monica. It was so delicious, I had it three times while there! When I find dishes I like, or love, I always take note of the ingredients and come home to make my copycat. This mediterranean quinoa salad incorporates fresh healthy ingredients and was really easy to create. Give or take any vegetable you need, I recently added zucchini to mine and it was amazing! Hope you enjoy this refreshing salad, and it becomes a family favorite for you too.
