2 cups fresh curly parsley, washed and chopped
1½ cups cooked quinoa
6 tablespoons hemp hearts 
1 medium tomato, diced
3 scallions, white and green parts, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons fresh mint, roughly chopped
¼ cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

What you do:

  1. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Mix well to coat and combine.
  2. Place in refrigerator to marinate for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
