Description

This remake of tabbouleh salad with quinoa and three kinds of fresh herbs is absolutely delicious from the first bite to the last. You can make it with any color of quinoa, and add other finely chopped crisp vegetables such as radishes, cauliflower, or carrots. Serve the salad alongside your favorite grilled meat, and keep it in mind for picnics and potlucks. The recipe, which makes 7 cups, is a Yummly original created by Tina Ujlaki.

    Directions

    1. Soak onion in the vinegar in a small bowl.
    2. Bring 6 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add 2 tsp. salt. Rinse quinoa in a fine strainer and add to boiling water. Cook until just tender, 18-20 minutes.
