Quinoa Greek Salad

2 cups water
1 cup quinoa
1 pinch salt
1 cup grape tomatoes (halved)
1 cup cucumber (chopped)
1/3 cups pitted kalamata olives (halved)
1/4 cups diced red onions
1/3 cups feta cheese
ground black pepper
1/4 cups olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar or Lemon
1 teaspoon dried oregano

Using a strainer, rinse the quinoa under cold water. Add quinoa, water, and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Let quinoa cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl, combine quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives, red onion, and feta cheese.
To make the dressing, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and oregano in a small bowl. Pour dressing over the salad and stir until mixed well. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
