  1. Bring broth and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer quinoa to a large bowl and set aside to cool, about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix tomatoes, parsley, kalamata olives, onion, feta cheese, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic into quinoa. Squeeze lemon juice over quinoa salad, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Chill in refrigerator, 1 to 4 hours.

Made this tonight and I am a quinoa lover. This was amazing!!!! My 17 year old daughter hid the leftovers from me and told me I can't take it to work. I will find it!!!

As recommended by others, I used 1/2 the quinoa and it was still a lot of quinoa. My Bunco guests seemed to enjoy it, but I would not bother making it again.
