Quinoa Tabouli Salad

Quinoa Tabouli Salad is a simple salad that is made with fresh chopped vegetables & a light lemon dressing. Quinoa is used instead of bulgar wheat which is traditionally used in tabouli, making this a healthy fresh gluten free option.

Recipe Notes
This recipe was made with white quinoa.

I usually soak my quinoa in cold water for about 15 minutes and rinse prior to cooking.

1 cup of uncooked quinoa yields about 4 cups cooked(so you would have a little extra).

Can be stored in fridge covered for up to a week.
