In a medium pot on the stove you will add your quinoa, water and salt. Cover and heat water to a boil, then reduce heat and allow it to simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the quinoa grains open. You can also follow the directions on your quinoa depending on variety you buy.
In a bowl you can prep and slice and dice your cucumbers, onion, red pepper, feta cheese, parsley, and olives. Add your cooled quinoa.
Grab a mason jar or bowl and add your homemade dressing ingredients, and whisk or shake with lid on until it is blended.
Pour the dressing over the Mediterranean quinoa salad, toss, and then refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
You can serve this with warm quinoa if you want a warm quinoa salad.
Feel free to change up the vegetables added into the salad if you would like.
