This makes for great lunch box or picnic fare. When we have it for dinner, we double the recipe because it makes for good leftovers, too! The recipe calls for the quinoa to be boiled like pasta, but I prefer simmering it like brown rice, so I’ve adjusted the water in the ingredient list accordingly (you may have to use up to 2 c.) and have rewritten the directions.

You might want to modify the oil-to-vinegar ratios a bit – we tend to like very vinegary things. The amounts and types of beans are variable, and the onion is optional. If you’re going to store this for any length of time, you might want to skip the onion – it can get a little overpowering.
