Greek Salad with Quinoa and Za'atar Grilled Chicken Wednesday, April 02 2014 1 Comment
Say goodbye to boring salads and add this simple, healthy alternative to your weekly lunch or dinner rotation.
This Greek quinoa salad gets its tangy taste from chicken marinated in za'atar, a seasoning blend of dried herbs, toasted sesame seeds, sumac and salt. A traditional staple of Middle Eastern cuisine, za'atar adds a bright, citrusy flavor and a vibrant aroma.
