The warmer months provide a steady demand for light, easy salads. Quinoa is one of those great foods that taste great warm or cold and holds up well against the other unique flavors in this salad.  This great summertime salad offers a fresh and tangy alternative to more traditional pasta salads, with just a hint of sophistication. It's a great dish for picnics, potlucks and your own kitchen table.

Quinoa and feta - a match made in heaven. I suggest trying this recipe with about half the feta and then adding more if you think it needs it. Because quinoa has its own creamy mouth texture, a little cheese goes a long way.
