  • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Stir in half of the cheese, the basil, salt, and pepper. Add mixture to quinoa mixture, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with remaining half of the cheese. Serve at room temperature.

Our teen daughter absolutely loves this recipe. She takes it to school for lunch. I make extra dressing and save it in a different container so it can be added to freshen things up a bit. Read More
