Author Notes

Who would not love a nutritious and deliciously refreshing salad like this? This is my take on classic Tabouleh that I serve with grilled meats as a side dish or have it on its own for a light lunch. It is a great bonus that it can be prepared in advance and kept in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. All you need is quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, parsley, mint, olive oil, and lemon juice. —Saboush
