Quinoa and Corn Feta Salad
From “The I Love My Instant Pot” Cooking for One Recipe Book by Lisa Childs. Published by Adams Media, available July 6, 2021.

Vegetables and quinoa never looked so beautiful! This healthy meal is easy to make with quinoa left over from a larger family meal, or fresh for a single-portion make-ahead lunch or dinner. I like to purchase small bags of frozen edamame to keep as a healthy snack or to add to dishes like this.
