Vegan Greek Dressing

Instructions

Quinoa

  • Cook quinoa according to the directions; allow cooling completely before adding it to the salad.

Salad:

  • Place the chopped Romaine lettuce in the base of a bowl or plate.
  • Arrange the ingredients in rows with the quinoa in the center.
  • If servings in individual bowls, divided the ingredients into separate bowls.

Dressing

  • Add all ingredients to a measuring cup
  • Using a whisk, whisk the ingredients together.
  • Pour over salad and toss.
  • Serve.

Notes

  • If using canned beets, drain and lay the beets on paper towels to reduce the amount of moisture from the brine.
  • Do the same for the artichoke hearts and the banana peppers.
  • Make sure the quinoa is cool before adding to the salad ingredients.
  • So, if the dressing is cold, refrigerate it beforehand. If chilling the dressing makes it too thick, add water and whisk again.
  • Do not dress the salad until serving.
  • The dressing will last for 3-5 days refrigerated.
