If extra cooked quinoa is on hand in the fridge, this tasty update to classic tabbouleh is a great way to repurpose it. Quinoa is a perfect substitute for couscous. It looks similar, is... almost as easy to cook, but brings complete protein to the salad, giving it a heftier nutrition punch. Toss with the superfood kale and a spicy mustard vinaigrette, as here in this Kale & Quinoa Tabbouleh, to have a quick and easy, nourishing meal.
Combine all ingredients. Then toss with vinaigrette dressing at least 15 minutes before serving.
To make the mustard vinaigrette: Spoon all ingredients into a jar. Shake until completely blended and smooth.
If tasting too tart, add a little water to thin and mellow the flavor.
If preferred, add the chopped herbs and onion to just the vinegar plus a pinch of salt, mix well and let it sit for a few minutes. Use the vinegar mixture, herbs and all, to make the dressing by adding the rest of the vinaigrette ingredients.
