This easy, vegan quinoa salad recipe features the classic flavors of Middle Eastern cuisine. The earthiness of cumin and quinoa pairs with the crispy freshness of cucumber, lemon, and basil. It’s a simple salad that can be served as a side dish or as a meal on its own. For an extra pop of freshness, try adding chopped fresh red bell peppers, which contrast nicely with the roasted red pepper already in the recipe.
