Quinoa Fava Bean Spring Salad - Instructions

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add quinoa, reduce heat to maintain a steady simmer, and cook about
12 minutes. Turn off heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes (although quinoa may seem tough when you
turn off the heat, it will finish cooking during this time).

2. Shell fava beans, and peas, set aside.

3. In a large bowl, combine oil and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

4. Add cooled quinoa to dressing and toss to combine. Add vegetables and toss, add remaining ingredients
and toss to combine.
