Tangerine Canteen Summer Tabbouleh

This is my favourite, quick & simple summer salad. It's fresh & zingy & because of the protein factor that is provided by the quinoa, it's pretty much a meal in itself. That said, it does go really well with some grilled Halloumi or indeed any BBQ-ing situation.

Yay for Summer and yay for another month of #getyoursaladon - Lucy what are you up to?!

Summer Quinoa Tabbouleh

Ingredients (serves 4-6)

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa (red works best here)
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, peeled & quartered
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 large handful of chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 small handful of chopped mint leaves
  • 1/2 lemon, zest grated
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp coarse salt
  • Extra salt & pepper to season


  1. In a large bowl, mix together your cooked quinoa, cherry toms, cucumber, red onion, parsley & mint. Season with a little salt & pepper set aside.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Whisk well to fully combine before adding to the salad.
