Lately, I have been loving color on my plate! Not only is it pretty to look at while I eat, but I’m also left with this confidence that I am eating really well and doing my body good. I say that, because if I have a lot of color, then it’s pretty much coming from produce (vegetables and fruits). I’m also a big fan of salads and am always open to trying new variations. I do not like boring foods at all and this healthy and delicious Greek Super Grains Salad is anything but that! So filling, so nutritious, and so satisfying!
Definitely make the pita chips to go along with it, for a nice crunch! It kind of makes me feel as if I’m eating chips with salsa. Yum!
Greek Super Grains Salad with Homemade Pita Chips
inspired by Eats Well With Others
I did not create this recipe myself and the original is credited above! This is simply my slightly different version that I make for Caleb and I.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 3 vine ripe tomatoes, chopped
- 1 red onion, diced
- 2 small cucumbers, diced
- 1 red, green, and yellow bell pepper, each seeded and diced
- ½ lb feta, crumbled
- ½ cup olive oil
- 6 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- mini pitas, quartered
- olive oil, for brushing
- sea salt, for sprinklings
- Begin by rinsing the quinoa, and then drain. Cook it according to the instructions on your specific packaging.
- To make the pita chips at the end, pre-heat your oven to 375F now.
- While the quinoa cooks, chop the vegetables and toss them together in a large bowl with the feta.
- Next, add the cooked grains to the bowl and stir altogether.
- For the dressing, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, oregano, and salt, to taste.
- Toss with the grain mixture.
- Spread your quarter cuts of pitas on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush or spray with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Lastly, bake for 8-10 minutes or until desired crispiness.
