Quinoa Tabouli

quinoa tabouliYou can eat this flavorful Greek quinoa dish as a salad or as a sandwich spread with hummus as well.  When making this salad into a complete meal, add 2 Tbsp of seeds (per serving) for better balance.  I prefer sunflower seeds or hempseeds.  FYI – Fresh herbs are the key to tasty tabouli.
