This red quinoa salad is perfect for the warmer weather and is full of Greek flavours with red onion, feta, olives and tomatoes.

I like to serve this as a side dish with other cooked vegetables and protein, but you could easily have it as a main dish for lunch or a light dinner.

I’ve used vegetable stock in cooking the quinoa to give it some more flavour, but you can simply use water to cook the quinoa if you prefer.
