Remember on Monday how I was bellyaching about the heat wave and how intensely I wanted to swivel my way up a fruity cocktail, fall in, and just….live there?
I high tailed it. Hopped in the car, leaving molten lavaville for the mountains, where temperatures are 20 degrees cooler. For those of you who are still melting saunas of cranky sweat, my warmest (errrr….coolest?) wishes to you…I’ll be joining you again soon enough. Here, have some sangria!
The 4th of July happens to be my favorite holiday on account of my profound love for fireworks. Plus the love of barbecuing. And picnics. And floating down the river with boozy beverages in hand. Our nation’s day of independence brings me a lot of joy.
And here’s where your Greek quinoa salad comes in! It’s great for your 4th of July gathering. It’s not all mayo-ed out like potato or pasta salad. It’s light, refreshing, easy to make, and the whole thing can be prepped in 40ish minutes. Plus it serves as a side dish for 6 and can easily be doubled to feed an army.
Do you remember when I posted the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad and you went all haywire over it – asked it to go steady, moved in with it, and then promptly proposed marriage? This one’s like that.
Have a safe and happy holiday!
