1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, optional
4 8-inch (20 cm) flour tortillas

In a large saucepan over high heat, bring 2 cups (500 mL) water, quinoa and salt to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain well and let cool.
In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumber, red and green bell peppers, green onions and parsley. Drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper, if using.
