Arugula Quinoa Salad – Food Friday

Last weekend I tried California Pizza Kitchen’s Quinoa + Arugula Salad and loved it.  I decided to make my own version and it was so colorful I had to photograph it:

Arugula Quinoa Salad with Sun Dried Tomatoes
The California Pizza Kitchen version had pine nuts and 
asparagus, but I forgot to buy those when I was at the store, so mine is a simplified version.  Just toss this together for a healthy and delicious salad:

  • Baby Arugula (three handfuls – about 4 cups?)
  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup of sundried tomatoes (I used dried, not marinated in oil)
  • 1/4 cup of feta cheese
  • red onion sliced
  • lemon vinaigrette (3 parts olive oil, 1 part white balsamic vinegar & juice from 1/2 lemon)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

If you need any images of this tasty salad, these can be purchased by clicking any of the images in this post.

Have a great weekend!
