summer quinoa salad

Alright, I have a split second to share this recipe with you before pumpkin beers and pumpkin spice lattes take over.

We have two days until September.  I want to enjoy every ear of corn, every last cherry tomato, and possibly the last basil plant of the year.

The liquor stores are stocking up on pumpkin ales and I saw an advertisement for pumpkin spice lattes coming to a Starbucks near you. Hurry up guys!  These recipes wont be possible for much longer.

I seriously thought we had all the time in the world for tomatoes, then I left my house.  Damn you Starbucks!

Summer Quinoa Salad:

2 1/2 cups cooked quinoa

1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped

2 cup sliced cherry tomatoes

1/2 cup feta cheese

Cilantro for garnish

For the dressing:

juice of 1 lime

1 tbs honey

dash of cumin

1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley

In a bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing.  Set aside.

In a large bowl combine cooked quinoa with tomatoes, cucumber and feta.  Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.  Set aside and serve at room temperature or chilled.
