Excellent! This makes a very tasty salad, which we enjoy for lunch with a side of pita. We typically add lemon zest for an extra kick and we whip the lemon juice with some olive oil to make a nice lemon vinaigrette.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare remaining ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, stir together cooked quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, parsley, onion, and garbanzos. Sprinkle feta over mixture and season with oilive oil, salt, pepper, cumin and lemon juice. Mix well. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Quinoa Salad can be chilled for up to 24 hours or used immediately.
  3. Alternatively, serve quinoa in avocado halves; or substitute 1 diced avacado for the feta to make this a vegan dish.
