    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    An easy super fresh tasting side dish. I cut back on the parsley (1C), because I didn't have quite enough, so feel free to use as little or as much as you like but don't forget the mint. It is a must

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      *Aarti's Note: I chop the parsley and the mint by hand. You can use a food processor if you like, but I find it doesn't chop the leaves as uniformly, and has a tendency to turn them into a wet puree rather than tiny, crunchy little bites.
    2. 2
      Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Meanwhile, in a small cast-iron skillet (if possible), toast the quinoa over moderately-high heat until the grains give off a nutty aroma and start to pop. I use Quinoa-Toasted.
    3. 3
      After toasting, pour the quinoa into the boiling water, taking care that the pot doesn't boil over! Turn it down to a simmer, cover, and cook until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove it from the heat and allow to cool.
    4. 4
      Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, 1/2 rounded teaspoon of salt, pepper and nutmeg.
    5. 5
      Combine the parsley, mint, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, peppadews and the cooled cooked quinoa in a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Taste for seasoning, and let sit for about 5 minutes before you serve. (This tastes even better the next day!).
    6. 6
      Another way to serve it is with the tabbouleh in the center of a platter encircled with endive or romaine leaves to scoop it up.
