Greek Quinoa Salad

This quinoa salad was really easy to put together and has made for a great lunch! It keeps for several days which is a plus but I thought it would also make a great addition to any summer cookout or picnic! This recipe is adapted from Wholefully

1 1/2 cups chicken or veggie broth
1 cup quinoa
1 cucumber (diced)
1 red pepper (diced)
1/2 red onion (diced)
3 roma tomatoes (diced)
3/4 cup kalamata olives (chopped)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Stir the broth and quinoa together and bring to a boil.  Turn the heat to low, cover and let cook for 20-25 minutes or until the liquid has absorbed. Remove from heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Toss the cucumber, red pepper, red onion, tomatoes and kalamata olives with the quinoa. In a bowl whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, lemon juice, dried parsley, dried dill, salt and pepper. Pour over the quinoa and toss. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hours before serving.
