Quinoa tabouli is my new favorite lunch. It’s super filling and packed full of flavor. Since my kitchen has been overflowing with fresh vegetables and herbs this salad gets made A LOT!  Sometimes I play around with the ingredients but must of the time I try to keep the flavors traditional. I actually like to throw in a little red bell pepper for a nice sweet flavor and a little crunch.
