These grain-like seeds will easily take on the flavors of the surrounding components. Let the salad fully marinate in the dressing for maximum flavor.
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil and add the quinoa. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes or until the quinoa's sprout has spiraled out and grain is tender. 
Combine the quinoa with the peas, almonds amd mint, parsley, dill and lemon zest in a bowl. 
Dress the salad by drizzling with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Toss the salad with the dressing and serve with crumbled feta on top. This salad can be made ahead and served chilled.
Helpful Tip:
1. You can tear the fresh herbs with your hands; don’t worry about chopping them neatly!
