Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

Tabbouleh salad is usually made with couscous.  Although couscous has good nutrients, quinoa seems to have even more health benefits.

So this time, I made this different Tabbouleh.


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Pepper to taste

Wash well quinoa and boil it on the stove until tender. When quinoa is ready, drain any liquid left and place it in a medium bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients. Pour olive oil mixed with lemon juice on top and toss them all. 

Refrigerate until served.
