Quinoa salad with Feta, Pomegranate and Fresh Herbs

Salads have become a little more interesting over the years with the use of fruit, nuts and different kinds of grains. I like to do a bit of an interesting salad with our BBQ food to bring some refreshing flavours to the sometimes heavy BBQ meat and this one we have used a lot - its an adaptation of a Mary Berry recipe.

This is delicious on its own - or as a side dish at a BBQ. It can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days.

1. Cook the quinoa with the stock and allow it to cool
