Quinoa chickpea salad

I recently tried a salad at a friend’s place and it was really good. I got the recipe from my friend and here it is!

1 cucumber
2-3 tomatoes depending on size
2 packets of parsley (from supermarket)
1 bunch spring onions/sometimes mint if available
1 big red onion
1 can chickpeas
1 cup quinoa

Combine Juice of half a lemon with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of honey. Salt and pepper to taste.

Just mix everything.

My version (as pictured) has no onion, no spring onion, and less parsley because of my selective taste bud.

1) For quinoa every 1 cup boil in 1.5 cups of water on low flame til absorbed. I used a mini rice cooker.
2) You can also use bulgar wheat which is the original or use cous cous (normal or pearl type) works too.
