My family recently enjoyed a version of this flavorful quinoa salad for dinner. I used Kalamata olives instead of black olives and left out the walnuts. I found that you can also substitute couscous for the quinoa. I think that Feta Cheese is quickly becoming my favorite ingredient for salads these days – I love it! What about you?
