Watermelon Quinoa Tabouli

This Watermelon Quinoa Tabouli salad is a recipe I created for a contest a few weeks ago.
While it didn't win, it was just too good not to share! The watermelon is so juicy and bright with the fresh mint it may be my favorite summer salad. And bonus points for being healthy- you don't need to feel any guilt if you polish off the bowl without sharing!
Watermelon Quinoa Tabouli
¼ cup olive oil
6 Tablespoons lemon juice
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ cup finely minced shallot
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 cup finely minced flat leaf parsley
1 cup diced English cucumber
4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
1 cup cooked quinoa

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and shallot. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir gently to combine. Serve immediately, or place in the fridge to chill before serving. Serves 4.
