Here is another featured recipe that is part of the March is Nutrition Month campaign. A power bowl filled with great stuff!

Ingredients

Dressing:

  • Oil – ⅓ cup (75 mL)
  • Fresh lemon juice – 3 tablespoons (45 mL)
  • Dried oregano – 1 teaspoon (5 mL)
  • Salt and pepper – ¼ teaspoon (1 mL) each
  • Garlic, pressed – 1 clove

Power Bowl:

  • Quinoa, barley or brown rice, cooked – 2 cups (500 mL)
  • Grape tomatoes, halved – 2 cups (500 mL)
  • Sliced, halved English cucumber – 2 cups (500 mL)
  • Sweet yellow pepper, cubed – 1
  • Water-packed salmon or tuna, drained – 2 cans (6 oz/170 g, each)
  • Havarti cheese, cubed or pan fried halloumi cheese – 1 cup (250 mL)
  • Red onion, diced – ¼ cup (60 mL)
  • Kalamata olives, halved and pitted – 8

Directions

  1. Pan-fried halloumi cheese (if using): Cut halloumi into 1 cm slices. Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Add slices of halloumi and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. If you don’t have a non-stick pan, use a little bit of oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt, pepper and garlic; set aside.
  3. Power Bowl: Divide quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, yellow pepper, and salmon (or tuna) among 4 bowls. Top with cheese, onion, and olives. Drizzle with dressing.
