I attempted to make quinoa for years, but I never thought that it tasted very good. Until now! My mother-in-law recently shared her secrets for making quinoa fluffy and delicious, and she made this incredible quinoa tabbouleh salad. I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff! It’s super healthy and filling, but it’s really light and fresh due to all those straight-from-the-garden veggies.
- 2 cups Cooked Quinoa
- 1 Large Cucumber, quartered and chopped
- 3/4 cup Cherry or Pear Tomatoes, quartered and seeded
- 1/4 cup Red Onion, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons Lemon Juice
- 4 tablespoons Chives or Green Onions, chopped
- 1/2 cup Parsley, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
- 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
- Mix all ingredients together in bowl. May be served immediately, but flavors will mingle and intensify after chilling for a few hours in the refrigerator.
