Instructions

(Hide Photos)
1

Cook the quinoa according to package directions adding the thyme to the cooking liquid.

2

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Toss the asparagus with cooking spray, salt, and pepper. Roast on a baking sheet for 8-10 minutes until tender crisp. Remove and let cool slightly. Roughly chop.

3

Make the dressing by combining the red wine vinegar, olive oil, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper. Be careful not to add too much salt since black olives and feta are naturally salty.

4

Toss together the quinoa, asparagus, black olives, feta cheese, basil, parsley, and dressing.
