  • Mix lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, mint, salt, and pepper together in a separate small bowl. Pour over quinoa mixture; toss to combine.

Cook's Notes:

You can make this salad with lentils, barley, or rice instead of quinoa.

Speed cooling time by refrigerating quinoa after cooking, or make it the day before and refrigerate until needed.
