Lemon Quinoa Salad Recipe with tomato, feta cheese, fresh dill and lemon juice. Also learn how to cook perfect quinoa. | ifoodreal.com

Another quinoa recipe. Yes, I’m on a quinoa roll this week. I already made cilantro lime quinoa salad, now this lemon quinoa salad. Can’t help it. It just happens! I keep making quinoa. But wait, it gets even better! I made it actually 3 times. And that’s between Tuesday and Wednesday, so in 2 days.

I was out of lime and avocado to make cilantro lime kind but already had cooked quinoa. I opened my fridge and it happened – lemon quinoa salad with sliced cherry tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese and freshly chopped dill.

All of this goodness drizzled with lemon juice. Yes, just take a lemon, cut it in half and squeeze both halves onto the salad. No olive oil, trust me!I mix all the ingredients together and keep it in the fridge for up to 2 days in an airtight container.

Today I did Chalean Extreme workout, Lean Circuit, and had this lemon quinoa salad right after it. I usually make blueberry protein breakfast smoothie or chocolate protein shake recipe post-workout, but today I had this salad ready and needed my post-workout protein ASAP. Probably not ideal since quinoa has carbs but that’s OK.
