Balsamic Quinoa Salad

Balsamic Quinoa Salad
from Four Seasons Kitchen
serves 6 as a side dish

1 Cup Quinoa, Raw
1 Cucumber, Chopped
2 Bell Peppers, Chopped
1 Can Corn, Drained
1 Small Container Feta Cheese
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 Cloves Garlic, Chopped
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Big Squeeze Honey
Salt and Pepper, To Taste

Prepare quinoa according to package directions.  Let cool.  In a large bowl add quinoa, cucumber, peppers, corn, and feta.  Set aside.  In a small bowl mix together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, mustard, honey and salt and pepper.  Pour dressing over salad and mix well.  Cover and refrigerate a few hours before serving.

This salad is my new favorite side dish.  I make it almost every week!  It's perfect with a hamburger or a hot dog on the patio on a hot summer evening.
