  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water. Tip into a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 mins until the grains have swollen but still have some bite. Drain, then transfer to a bowl to cool slightly.

  2. Meanwhile, in a jug, combine the oil, lemon juice and vinegar with some seasoning.

  3. Once the quinoa has cooled, mix with the dressing and all the remaining ingredients and season. Divide between plates or lunchboxes.

Just had this for dinner- the whole family ate it and loved it...even my fussy 13yr old who won't eat tuna unless it's swimming in mayo. Will certainly make this again!

This recipe is to die for. I added green onion, cucumber, lemon zest and sunflower seeds. Delicious!

I made this for my family and it was delicious, being the sporty type I added a pesto- baked potato for carbohydrates and calories, and it went very well. Will be making again.
