quinoa salad.

Quinoa Salad from Randi:

2 cups and 1 cup quinoa
1 pinch of salt
1/2 tsp sea salt
rind from 1 lemon
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tomatoes, diced
1 cucumber, diced
2 bunches green onion, diced
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Rinse quinoa a few times before cooking. In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add quinoa and a pinch of salt. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature; fluff with a fork. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine olive oil, sea salt, lemon juice, tomatoes, cucumber, green onion and cilantro. Stir in cooled quinoa.
