We could live on this salad, so we had the idea of freezing it so that we could always have a stash available for lunches - genius.

All the fiddly details - getting the quinoa and chickpeas cooked just right, toasting the almonds, making the dressing, dicing the feta - are done by us and they freeze and defrost perfectly.  All you have to do is toss together and serve.
