Made this new recipe for dinner. Delicious, light, and fresh. Good alone or as a complementing side dish. My first recipe with quinoa. Now to look for more!

Ingredients~
2 cups water
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 cup tomato, diced
1 cup cucumber, diced
1/4 cup mint, chopped
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup kalamata olives, chopped
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (or more to taste if necessary)
1/2 teaspoon cumin, toasted and ground (optional if you don’t like the flavor)
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste

Directions~

(1) Bring the water and quinoa to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the liquid has all been absorbed, about 17-20 minutes and let cool.

(2) Mix the quinoa, tomato, cucumber, parsley, mint, olives, and green onion.

(3) Mix the lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, salt and pepper and toss with salad.
