Dressing

Directions:
Add quinoa, water and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed.

Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Let quinoa cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, combine quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, onion, feta cheese and garbanzo beans.

To make the dressing, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and oregano in a small bowl. Pour dressing over the salad and stir until mixed well. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
