Prepare quinoa a day or several hours before needed so you can refrigerate it. Boil 3 cups of water and stir in quinoa. Cover tightly and turn down to simmer. Stir after 10 min. After 5 more minutes (or once water is completely absorbed) stir again and turn off heat. Place lid on tightly for 5 more minutes. Then move to a big dish, fluff, and cool in the fridge without covering.
Meanwhile wash, spin or dry, and chop all the veggies fine. Mix them with the lemon juice, olive oil, zest, salt and pepper. Set aside for the quinoa to cool. Mix together when cooled and serve.
