I have a weakness for a good Greek salad – that trademark brininess, the unapologetic saltiness, the borderline aggressiveness of the raw red onion, the refreshing crunch of cucumber – all held up by firm, crisp romaine and drizzled with an assertive vinaigrette. Greek salad, you rock.
Greek salad inspired quinoa is also great… but I found myself missing the foundation of that fresh romaine lettuce. To solve this problem, I decided to serve the Greek quinoa salad in romaine lettuce cups, like a lettuce wrap. I sprinkled on the feta cheese right at the end. This makes a fabulous lunch or light meatless dinner in warm-weather months. These would also make a great side dish served alongside something off the grill. This recipe is easily doubled to serve a crowd.
