Quinoa Salad

I had quite a lot of quinoa leftover from the Double Broccoli Quinoa I made, and it was coated in delicious broccoli pesto. I knew it would be a good base quinoa salad, so I made some for lunch. Quinoa salad is super simple to make. I chopped up a cucumber, a little red onion and some cherry tomatoes and added them to the quinoa along with half a can of chickpeas, then I mixed in a little olive oil and some lemon juice. This dish didn't need any spices because of the broccoli pesto, but you can add some if you like. This dish was a really tasty lunchtime treat!
