Changes: replace cotija cheese with feta


Ingredients


Salad

1 cup uncooked #quinoa

1 medium #zucchini, diced

1 cup fresh #corn

1 tbsp EVO

1 medium peach, diced

2-3 ounces feta, crumbled

2-3 tbsp chopped green onions


Dressing

1 medium peach, pitted and diced (no need to peel the peach)

1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo, diced

2 tbsp EVO

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp agave nectar


Instructions

Cook the quinoa according to the directions on the package.


Place all the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a blender and blend until smooth.


Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the zucchini and sauté until softened (but not squishy), about 2 minutes. Transfer the zucchini to a plate or bowl. Add the corn to the skillet and sauté until tender (about 8-10 minutes).


In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, zucchini, corn, diced peach, and vinaigrette. Stir in half of the feta, and sprinkle the remaining half on top, along with the chopped green onions.
