  • ½ cup pine nuts

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup quinoa

  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach

  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes

  • ½ cup halved Kalamata olives

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • ¼ cup minced red onion


  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir pine nuts in the hot skillet until fragrant and toasted, about 5 minutes.

  2. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes; fluff with a fork and cool to room temperature.

  3. Mix quinoa, spinach, kidney beans, tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, and onion together in a bowl.

  4. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until dressing is smooth; drizzle over quinoa mixture and toss to coat.
