Quinoa and Feta Summer Salad, a wholesome, cheesy and crumbly salad with the goodness of protein rich quinoa, chick peas and feta cheese. The tanginess imparted by the sweet-tart apple cider and lemon juice in the dressing is the characteristic flavour of this dish. Garlic, pepper, coriander and olive oil lend a variety of intriguing flavours to the dressing.
