ALICIA ROSS FOR KITCHEN SCOOP Enlarge
Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a fairly new grain to my table. But, boy, have I enjoyed mixing it with fresh ingredients this summer and producing all kinds of healthy dinner salads and side salads.
Today’s recipe is inspired by Mediterranean flavors: cucumbers, tomatoes, parsley, and lots of crumbled feta. Who can resist? The nutty flavor of the cooked grain is a perfect accent and is delicious served cold or at room temperature, so picnic possibilities are endless.
If you haven’t tried this “new” ancient grain, don’t wait another minute. You’re going to love it. Share your favorite mix-ins or preparations for quinoa on kitchenscoop.com, or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
