 1 red bell pepper, chopped
 1/4 cup chopped scallion
 1/4 cup chopped red onion

 Rinse the quinoa well before cooking to remove its slightly bitter 
 coating.  Place quinoa and water in a pan.  Boil, cover, reduce the heat, 
 simmer for 15 min. or until liquid is absorbed.
 Combine chopped veggies including the fresh chopped herb of your choice.
 Mix well.  Add cooked quinoa.  Toss gently and add dressing.  Toss again 
 and add pepper to taste.  Cover and chill for 2 hours before serving.
