Prep time includes cooking quinoa, which can be be done ahead. The rest takes less than 5 minutes.
To prepare quinoa, add it to 3 cups water, salting if desired. Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes until water is absorbed. Fluff and let sit for 5 minutes.
Whisk or stir all ingredients together. Serve immediately or chill. For seasonings, I use plenty of parsley and thyme, some very finely minced garlic and onion, and a little salt and pepper. Don't be shy with the herbs, and use triple the amount if you've got fresh instead of dried.
