Colorful Quick Quinoa Grecian Salad
Need to serve a crowd and want a great make-ahead dish? Then this is the recipe for you. It makes a hefty 10 cups and holds up beautifully for a day or two—making it the perfect dish for a block party, picnic, or family reunion. You’ll love the fresh flavor from lemon and mint, plus the addictive crunch of bell pepper and cucumber. We call for cooking the quinoa in chicken broth to add more flavor and depth, but you can use vegetable stock to make the dish vegetarian.
