To Prepare the Quinoa Salad:
  1. Cook the quinoa by following instructions on the back of the package (be sure to rinse and soak the quinoa first for light and fluffy results!)
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the rest of the salad ingredients by doing all your chopping and adding everything except for the feta cheese to a large bowl.
  3. Once the quinoa is cooked and has cooled, add it to the bowl with the other salad ingredients and fold together gently.
  4. Pour the dressing over everything and again gently fold the ingredients together.
  5. Add the feta cheese on top and serve either hot or cold!
