Fresh Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

I made this Fresh Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad to have with my Chickpea Falafel Wraps or some days just for lunch or dinner alone. Either way paired
off or alone it’s one of my favorite salads. It’s got a good amount of quinoa in it and good sources of vegetables that are so vibrant and full of life. This salad is all organic, so easy to put together and full of nourishment for the body mind and soul!
