This refreshing take on tabbouleh is a great way to add flavor to your salad or makes a great meal on it's own.
Bring quinoa, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1 1/4 cups water to a boil over high heat. Once it reaches a boil, lower the heat to medium-low, cover with a lid, and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for about 5 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork and let cool.
While the quinoa is cooking, whisk lemon juice and garlic in a large bowl. Gradually whisk in olive oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.
Add cucumber, tomatoes, herbs, and scallions to bowl with quinoa tossing well to coat. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if needed. Refrigerate before serving.
