Indian quinoa salad

I bought an Indian spiced quinoa and chick pea salad today from the salad bar. Is there a recipe so I can make it at home?

PattieO, if you'd like the exact recipe for the salad, someone in Customer Service or Prepared Foods would be able to share it with you -- just stop by either department when you're in the store next.

I'm kind of curious about the appelation "Indian". India as in the subcontinent? Quinoa actually comes from Bolivia, where of course there are "Indians". Rather far though, from Indian south asian spices.
