Pair this satisfying salad with our hummus recipe and some ZaZa.
In a medium saucepan, bring 2¼ cups water to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in the quinoa. Cover tightly, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes more. Then remove the lid, fluff with a fork, and let cool.
In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, scallions, parsley, mint, lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper. Stir well. Serve at room temperature.
