      I'm a big fan of quinoa, I've only started eating it lately, but it's my new favorite "side-dish" even if I eat it as a main dish. I do have to admit that I am not a fan of goat's cheese, so I used a really good sheep's milk feta. The sharpness of the cheese went beautifully with the nutty flavor of the quinoa. Before squeezing the juice out of the lemon I zested it and also tossed the zest in with the parsley. The recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of pine nuts, but that's a joke in this family, I topped it all with about 1/2 cup of pine nuts, which we all fought over, of course. Rita, thanks for helping me to add another quinoa recipe to my repetoire!

      I enjoyed this fresh, healthy salad. I chose peas, as I had frozen ones. I did toast the quinoa in a iron skillet, then added water. Thanks Rita!

      I served this as a warm salad with bacon instead of cheese and it was great - it also could be served hot or cold and would be yummy . I toasted my quinoa first and it certainly reduces the earthy flavour, All the herbs were freshly snipped from my garden. Made for ZWT 7.
