A classic favorite vamped up, with protein-and-fiber-packed quinoa subbed for pasta. So filling, it can easily be a meal in itself!
Rinse the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer. Add with the water or stock to a medium-sized pot. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for 15 minutes, or until all of the water has been absorbed. Add to a large bowl and let cool.
Add the dressing ingredients to a mason jar or other container with a lid and shake vigorously. Mix the dressing in with the quinoa salad until it's well-coated. And you're done! You have a beautiful, healthful garden pasta salad to enjoy!
