Rinse and drain quinoa using a mesh strainer or sieve.
Bring medium saucepan to med heat, lightly toast quinoa to remove excess water. Stir just a few minutes. This step is optional but adds to nuttiness & fluff!
Add water, set to high & boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered with lid slightly ajar for 12-13 minutes or until quinoa is fluffy and liquid is absorbed.
Chop & prep remaining ingredients and whisk together dressing ingredients.
Fluff quinoa and add toppings of choice.
