Zesty Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Zesty Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is technically a seed, but it cooks and tastes like a grain. It's ideal for salads—warm or cold—and can be used in soups, as a pilaf-like side dish, or formed into patties to make homemade veggie burgers. And because it's a complete protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids), it's an excellent ingredient to use in vegetarian dishes.
