Instructions

  1. Start by rinsing the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitterness.

  3. Once cooked, fluff the quinoa with a fork and let it cool to room temperature.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, pomegranate seeds, diced cucumber, chopped red onion, and fresh mint leaves.
  5. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and red wine vinegar to create the dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Sprinkle crumbled feta cheese on top and serve your Pomegranate Quinoa Salad Bowl immediately.
