Greek Salad Dressing

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • juice of one lemon
  • 3 tbsp Greek oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley

Greek Style Quinoa Bowl Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked and chilled quinoa 1 cup uncooked
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 cup chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1/2 English cucumber sliced in half inches circles and quartered
  • 1/2 small red onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives sliced in half, lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • Prepare Greek Salad Dressing by combining all ingredients into a small mason jar and shaking vigorously. Set aside. (Please note that the salad dressing can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. The flavors will marinate and come through even stronger.)
  • Combine prepared and cooled quinoa, yellow bell pepper, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, Kalamata olives and feta cheese in a large bowl. Pour the salad dressing over all ingredients and mix well to incorporate.


  1. Please note that the salad dressing can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. The flavors will marinate and come through even stronger.
  2. You can adjust the ingredients of the salad as you like.  In the past we've also included chopped artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, red and green bell pepper.
  3. You can serve this as a main dish or a side salad.  If served as a side salad it is enough for 8 servings.
  4. This is a great dish to prepare ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator for the week ahead.
