Quinoa Tabbouleh

This spin on the classic Middle Eastern salad, "tabbouleh," swaps traditionally used bulgur wheat (which you could also use) for nutritional, superstar quinoa, which is high in "complete protein," meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Serve it as a dinner side dish or store it covered in the refrigerator for a healthy and filling go-to snack.

In a small bowl or cup, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

In a serving bowl, toss together the quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, parsley, scallions and mint. Add the dressing, toss until evenly coated, and serve.
