Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 cup dry quinoa
    1 cup ripe cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
    2 tablespoons diced red onion- or use 2 chopped scallions
    1/2 yellow (or any color would do - I like to use a different colors) bell pepper cut into strips
    1 cup chopped cucumber
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1/2 cup goat or feta cheese crumbles
    DRESSING:
    1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    Juice from 1 lime
    2-3 fresh mint sprigs, leaves removed and chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves or parsley
    Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions

Cook the dry quinoa as you would raw rice: in 2 and 1/2 cups fresh salted water, covered, until all of the water is absorbed. If you have a rice cooker, I suggest using it.

Whisk together the oil, lime, herbs and seasoning.

Scoop the cooked quinoa into a bowl and add the rest of veggies, drizzle with the dressing and toss lightly with a fork until combined. Top with cheese crumbles.

Taste test and adjust seasonings.

Cover and chill.

Makes 4-6 servings.
