Quinoa Salad Tabbouleh-Style


1 cup quinoa, rinsed well
½ teaspoon kosher salt (optional)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1 large English hothouse cucumber or 2 Persian cucumbers, cut into ¼-inch pieces
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
2/3 cup chopped fresh parsley (or another herb of your choice to suit your palate)
½ cup chopped fresh mint
2 scallions, thinly sliced

Bring quinoa, the ½ teaspoon kosher salt (if using), and 1¾ cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and there is no water left in the pan, about 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Meanwhile, for dressing, whisk lemon juice and garlic in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in olive oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

Let quinoa cool; transfer it to a large bowl and mix in ½ cup dressing. At this point, you can cover and refrigerate quinoa up to a day ahead of time. Add cucumber, tomatoes, herbs, and scallions to bowl with quinoa; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add remaining dressing. Makes 6 servings. Recipe from Zoe Shannon.
