Ingredients:  
2 cups uncooked quinoa (mix of red and white quinoa makes for a nice visual but any color will do)
1/2 red onion
1 cucumber
1 bunch cilantro
1 block of feta cheese
6 limes

Directions:
Directions:
Cook quinoa according to packaging directions, do not include salt (the feta cheese provides all the salt needed). Once cooked, allow the quinoa to lower to room temperature. I spread it on a baking sheet to cool when I'm in a hurry. While waiting, chop the onion, cilantro and cucumber into cubes the size of your pinky fingernail or smaller (depends on how good your knife skills are, mine are lacking). Put chopped ingredients in a bowl large enough to fit the entire recipe then squeeze the limes on top of the contents. Shop feta cheese into cube slightly larger than the vegetable pieces and add to bowl. Fold and quinoa and taste test!
