Greek Quinoa Salad

I am loving the hot weather, but who wants to eat a heavy meal when it's this hot outside? I thought a nice refreshing salad that is high in protien would be a fun post for today. You could easily make a meal off my Greek Quinoa Salad, or you could throw some burgers or sausage on the grill, and serve it as a yummy side to any summer meal!

Greek Quinoa Salad
Serves 6-8 

4 cups of cooked quinoa
1 bunch of roasted asparagus, diced
1/2 large red onion, chopped
1- 12oz jar of kalamata olives, chopped
2 cups of cherry tomatoes, halved
4 tbsp. Fresh oregano, chopped
1- 6oz container of crumbled feta cheese

Dressing (whisk together):
3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil

Roast Asparagus on a cookie sheet on 350 for 12 minutes with olive
oil, salt, and pepper.
Put cooled quinoa in a large bowl. Add dressing and mix well.
Add the remaining ingredients to quinoa and stir well.
