Zesty is the perfect way to describe this. Wonderful served with grilled fish/meat of any kind.
Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh strainer for several minutes under cold water to remove bitter outer coating. Combine quinoa, water, and black pepper in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until all liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine diced tomato, diced zucchini, diced red onion, olive oil, lemon juice, and chopped basil in a mixing bowl. When quinoa is done, add it to the mixing bowl. Let mixture chill for awhile before adding crumbled feta. Overall, this is best served after chilling 4 hours or longer.
