I used chopped fresh parsley instead of Cilantro and chopped fresh zuccini instead of cucumber (because I had them on hand). It was fantastic. (It wound up being like the old Moosewood recipe for Tabouli except for the use of quinoi instead of bulgar wheat.) I loved the mellower quinoi flavor. - 9/9/10
