      1/3   c            Italian parsley, chopped
      1/3   c            Mint, chopped
                         -----VINAIGRETTE-----
      1/4   c            Lime juice
      1/4   ts           Ground white pepper
    1       ea           Fresh chile, seeded & minced
    1       t            Coarse salt
      1/2   c            Olive oil
 
   Rinse quinoa under running water and drain.  Place the quinoa and
   water in a large saucepan, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat;
   this should take about 5 minutes.  Remove the cover and lower the
   heat; simmer 10 minutes longer.  Drain the quinoa and cool.
   While the quinoa is cooking, make the vinaigrette.  In a bowl, whisk
   together the lime juice, pepper, chile and salt.  Gradually add the
   olive oil, stirring constantly.  Set aside.
   When the grain has cooled, assemble the salad.  In a bowl place the
   quinoa with the cucumber, tomato, scallions, parsley and mint.  Toss
   to mix the ingredients, then add the vinaigrette and toss thoroughly.
   Season to taste with salt and white pepper.
