Cook quinoa according to package (except using vegetable broth, not water).
While quinoa is cooking, chop all veggies. In a large bowl, place cooked quinoa, veggies and seasonings and stir together. Place in fridge to get cool, and enjoy cold! EASY PEASY!
Tahini Lemon Dressing
In a small bowl whisk together 1/4 cup tahini, 1/4 cup olive oil, 4 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 clove garlic minced, 1/4 tsp. cayenne, salt and pepper to taste. Depending on how thick or runny your tahini is, you may need to add more olive oil to get the consistency you like.
If you don’t care for the tahini dressing – I love the Lemon Poppyseed dressing from my 6 Staple Summer Salad dressings blog post with this quinoa salad too!
