Yum! This was just like a quinoa tabouleh. We added some salt and pepper and cooked the quinoa with chicken stock. Thanks for posting!

We just made this, I think it may need to sit for a bit. It's good b/c it is clean, basically a tabouleh. But it seemed a bit leafy, as in alot of parsley. Anyhoo, I think tomorrow it'll be great. We are pairing it to a kielbasa potato dish, so this salad's lightness will help digest the other dish's heaviness. Thanks for your post!

This is simple and really delicious. I'd love to try it with the mint. Not having that, I added a bit of cilantro and fresh basil. I love the strong lemony-ness. Thanks ellie!
