Mediterranean Quinoa Salad – 1st Runner Up!

Hello fellow food enthusiasts! Chef Richie here, at your culinary service. This is the first blog in a monthly series, to discuss several recipe entries (not entrées) from our 2016 recipe contest that merit honorable mention. The first recipe in this series is…drumroll please…Chef Aleksu Hillerstrom’s Mediterranean Quinoa, Feta, Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Salad…perfectly timed for the still hot days of summer. Chef Aleksu has followed some of the inside info I hint about below regarding how I look at recipe contest entries, and although this dish didn’t “make the podium”, it was under consideration and the entire taste panel liked it a lot.
