Lemon Quinoa and Lentil Salad
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 – 40 minutes
1/2 cup quinoa
1/2 cup lentils
1/2 large cucumber or 2 small ones
4 tsp olive oil
3 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp dijon mustard
4 tbsp of goat feta cheese
Cook the quinoa and lentils according to the instructions. On the package that I used for lentils, I didn’t realize that I was supposed to soak them overnight. Instead, I washed them thoroughly and boiled them as directed. The quinoa that I used came with a lemon powder. If it does not come with lemon powder, that’s okay! You can also add 2 tsps of lemon juice to the quinoa and water before bringing the mixture to a boil.
While the quinoa and lentils are cooking, dice the cucmber and tomatoes, and set them aside for assembly.
Once the quinoa and lentils are cooked and prepped, pour both into a large bowl.
For the vegetables and sauce, I poured my serving size into two containers, and before I went to eat the salad, I added the vegetables as well as desired amount of the sauce.
Add 2 tbsp of goat feta cheese per servings. Mix and enjoy!
What I love about this recipe is it allows a lot of flexibility! I love the lemony flavour in my quinoa, therefore, I had add a ton of lemon juice, but if you don’t like the lemon, you can easily take it out of the boiling process or reduce the amount used in the sauce. Also, if tomatoes are not convenient or you just don’t like them, peppers are also a nice substitute!
I don’t usually add the vegetables and the sauce until I’m about to eat the salad because I feel like it gets soggy, and it goes bad quicker than if they were separate.
I loved the texture and flavour of this salad, and I also enjoy that it is an incredibly easy and versatile recipe.
Let me know if you tried the recipe, what you think and what your little variations of it are!

HOLISTIC REMEDIES - utilizing the medicinal power of mother nature 🤒
Autumn has arrived with the changing of the leaves and a crisp chill in the air. It's a time for us to layer under warm sweaters and big scarves. 🤒
Autumn also means cold and flu season. We have to be extra careful to stay healthy! Here is a list of holistic remedies that we use at Tao Day Spa to support our immune systems:
Itchy Throat - Apply a blend of essential oils on the throat, chest and tummy. Winnie's favorite blend is tea tree (5 drops) + lemon (4 drops) to a tbsp of carrier oil. She also recommends taking two ester coated Vitamin C daily and drink lots of water!
Common Cold - Echinacea is wonderful, especially if you can get the syrup based version. Again, take Vitamin C twice daily with lots of water. You can also boil a spicy tea broth made of fresh ginger, dried cloves, dried cardamom, and a stick of cinnamon (add almond milk to make it into a chai).
Prevent Sickness - Use a diffuser with a blend of frankincense, lemon or grapefruit and lavender. This blend is antiviral and antibacterial. You can play with the quantities of drops depending on which scents you like best. Keep in mind that you only need a total of 6 drops in a diffuser. 🤒
