Spring is in the air and outdoor meals are on my brain, so I’ve partnered with @PureLeafIcedTea to bring you this Quinoa Tabouli Salad w/ Garbanzo Beans + Feta Cheese. The simple, fresh flavors and whole ingredients in the salad pair perfectly with a real brewed unsweetened iced tea! #RealBrewedRecipes
Quinoa Tabouli Salad with Feta & Garbanzo Beans
Yield: 4-6 Servings
2 cups cooked quinoa
½ cup chopped scallions
¼ cup fresh chopped mint
½ cup fresh chopped parsley
1 cup Persian cucumbers, chopped
1 cup garbanzo beans
2 cloves of minced garlic
¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large tomato, diced
2 oz crumbled feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine quinoa, scallions, mint, parsley, cucumbers, and garbanzo beans in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, (I like to use a spouted Pyrex cup) whisk together the garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and then pour over the quinoa mixture, combine well.
Gently toss in the tomato and feta cheese. Enjoy!
Storage Tip: Keeping fresh herbs rolled in a damp paper towel and sealed in a plastic bag in the fridge will keep it fresh for almost 2 weeks.
