or500 grams of water
Place quinoa in a fine mesh sieve and hold under cold, running water to rinse well; drain. (Or you can put quinoa in a sheet of cheesecloth, run water through it and then let it drain).
Bring 2 cups of water and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to a boil in a small saucepan; stir in quinoa and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Uncover and remove pan from heat to cool. Steam the green beans and reserve (Or use can cooked green beans)
Chop the red pepper in small dices
Combine green beans, red pepper and shrimp / Or tuna, in a large salad bowl; stir in cooled quinoa.
Make the dressing : Combine lemon juice, broth, oil, dill, remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt and black pepper in a cup; stir well. Pour dressing over salad and toss gently but well.
Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.
Capers can add a delightful tangy flavor to this salad. Skip the dill and add 2 tablespoons of capers to the recipe instead, if desired. Because capers are salty, taste the salad before adding the last 1/4 teaspoon of salt – you may not need it.
