Ingredients

1 cup
dry quinoa
2 tablespoons
fruity extra virgin olive oil
   
Juice from 2 limes
2  
fresh mint sprigs
2 tablespoons
chopped fresh cilantro leaves
   
Sea salt and group pepper
1/2 cup
cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons
diced red onion
1 clove
garlic

Instructions

1. First, rinse your quinoa in a sieve (it's tiny so the usual colander might not do).

2. Cook the quinoa in 2 ¼ to 2 ½ cups fresh salted water, covered, until all of the water is absorbed. Prepare the remaining ingredients while the quinoa is cooking.

3. Scoop the cooked quinoa into a bowl and add the remaining ingredients, tossing lightly with a fork until combined. Taste test and adjust seasonings. Cover and chill.
