This quinoa tabbouleh salad is a little different from your average tabbouleh because:

A) I use quinoa instead of bulgur for it’s nutritional values. (Low glycemic, gluten-free packed with fiber!)
B) I use chopped spinach instead of parsley, and add diced cucumbers and crumbled goat cheese for additional flavor.
C) I like to serve it with a side of pita chips and use it as a dip!
