Hi everyone!!! So, it is Weds. ~ usually that is Aldi day here. I took a few weeks off, was it missed?? I never have minded doing the “Aldi Special Buys” posts”, I actually enjoyed it ~ BUT really I don’t see an increase in readers that day, comments, or extra clicks. SO I am not sure it is read or useful to anyone. That is fine. I just think for now I am not going to be doing the Aldi day anymore. (unless THERE is a huge protest and people still want to see the “special buys”!!)
THANKS as always for reading AND commenting. Seriously. Thanks.
Now for a recipe, Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Feta Cheese.
THAT sounded fancy as I typed it in. Well, I am really not fancy. Nor is this salad. It is easy, healthy, yummy. I did not serve this to my family, but to a friend. We both enjoyed it. Keep this in mind when you are having some friends over for lunch, it is a fun salad for that. OH, or just for fun, make it for yourself. I have.
Quinoa Salad with Cranberries and Feta Cheese
1 1/2 c. of cooked, cooled quinoa (follow pkg. directions)
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. toasted pecans (toast slowly in a skillet, stirring often, till they smell nutty)
4 oz. feta cheese
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. olive oil
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. honey
few grains of salt
Combine the quinoa, green onion, cranberries, pecans and feta.
Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Dijon, honey and salt. Pour over quinoa mixture JUST before serving.
