Tabbouleh free
What you need
½ cup quinoa
1  cup gluten-free chicken broth such as Better Than Bouillon®
¾ cup chopped cucumber
¾ cup chopped celery
½ cup snipped fresh parsley
¼ cup thinly sliced green onions
1 tablespoon snipped fresh mint
1 recipe Tabbouleh Dressing
¾ cup chopped tomato
4  lettuce leaves

How to make the salad

1  Place quinoa in a colander and rinse with warm water for 2 minutes. Note: quinoa must be rinsed VERY WELL to remove the bitterness on the grain. In a saucepan, combine quinoa and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and let cook until quinoa splits and absorbs most of the chicken broth, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool.
2  In a large bowl combine quinoa, cucumber, parsley, green onions, and mint. Drizzle with Tabbouleh Dressing and toss to coat. Cover and chill for
4 to 24 hours. Stir tomato into quinoa mixture just before serving. Serve on lettuce leaves. Serves 4.

Tabbouleh Dressing: In a screw-top jar combine 3 tablespoons canola oil, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 tablespoons water, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cover and shake well.
