This delicious twist on traditional tabbouleh substitutes quinoa for bulgur and will round out any well-balanced meal. Mint is a classic herb for tabbouleh, but if it doesn’t fit your taste preferences, parsley makes a solid substitute.

  • ½ cup chopped fresh mint
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup chopped cucumber
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped green onions

  • 2 tsp. minced fresh onion
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
