Quinoa Tabbouleh with Chickpeas

Tabbouleh is such a quick, easy Lebanese dish that incorporates so many good things; heart healthy olive oil, crisp vegetables and healing herbs. I have always incorporated some chickpeas into the dish for additional protein. Once I discovered quinoa, the ancient seed was an easy substitute for me, as quinoa is wheat-free and does not result in any insulin spikes for me. I like to add a green leafy vegetable to the salad (in this case arugula) so it becomes one dish eating.
