What you need:

  • A knife and a chopping board
  • A pot and a colander to cook the quinoa
  • A big bowl for the salad
  • A small bowl for the dressing

Ingredients for 2 persons:

  • 170gr quinoa (1 cup)
  • 230gr cherry tomatoes (1 cup)
  • 2 avocados
  • 80gr fresh spinach
  • 40gr Feta cheese
  • 3 spring onions
  • 2 garlic cloves (the garlic will taste strong since it’s uncooked, so you may prefer to limit it to 1 clove)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salt

Ready to go?

  • Cook the quinoa according to package instructions.
  • While it’s cooking, put the spinach in a big bowl.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and set aside.
  • Slice the spring onions (keeping the leaves out) and set aside.
  • Dice the avocados and set aside.
  • Dice the Feta and set aside.
  • When the quinoa is cooked, add it to the spinach in the large bowl, toss and leave for a few minutes (the heat from the quinoa will soften the spinach).
  • Prepare your dressing: whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt and minced garlic.
  • Toss everything and it’s ready to be served.
  • BON APPÉTIT !
