Instructions
  1. Cook the quinoa ahead of time. If you're so inclined you can spice it while its cooking, throwing in some cayenne or basil according to your taste. Let it cool and store it in the fridge until you're ready to start assembling the salad.
  2. Dice the tomato, cucumber, and onion.
  3. Mix the vegetables into the quinoa, and top with the oil and vinegar.
  4. That's it! You're ready to eat. This salad makes a wonderful canvas for additions, tweaks, and experimentation - try zazzing it up with a handful or arugula or a can of chickpeas!
