I made a tabouli that I've made before, but with pearl barley. I loved it, so I thought I'd give it a try with quinoa. My friend, Kristin, brought over a similar dish with cucumber and feta cheese so I sort of combined the two.
1/2 cup of dry quinoa
1 cup of water
1/2 tomato, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1/2 bunch of green onions, sliced thinly
3/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup feta cheese
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Juice of one lemon
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
salt to taste
1) Cook the quinoa in the water according to the package directions. Allow the quinoa to cool.
2) Toss the other ingredients in a large tupperware bowl.
3) Toss the quinoa in with the other ingredients.
4) Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
