1 cup quinoa, rinsed well
2/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2/3 cup chopped parsley
½ cup chopped mint
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 large cucumber cut into small pieces
1 cup chopped tomatoes
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. When the water boils, reduce heat to medium-low, add the cup of quinoa, and cover.
Wait 10-15 minutes until the quinoa is tender. Remove it from the saucepan into a bowl and let it stand for about 10 minutes.
Whisk the lemon, garlic, and the olive oil together. Season it with salt and pepper.
Add the cucumber, tomatoes, herbs, and scallions to the bowl with quinoa, toss the ingredients. Add the dressing, and toss again.
Bon appétit !
