Place the red and white quinoa in a small saucepan with the water, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes until all the water is absorbed. Remove from the heat and cool completely.
In a salad bowl, place the peas, beans, corn, carrots, capsicum, tomatoes, onion and shallots. Mix together and add the cooled quinoa.
Whisk together the olive oil, garlic, mustard, vinegar, and seasoning and pour over the salad. Toss well and leave for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to combine.
