This is a great fresh tasting salad perfect for summer. I use it as a side dish at dinner.
2 cups cooked and cooled quinoa
1 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 tbsp. chopped fresh mint
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
1 tbsp. minced fresh basil
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground white pepper
Toss together all ingredients. Chill for 1 hour or more to allow flavors to blend. Makes 6 servings.
