    3       c            Cold, cooked quinoa-See note
      1/2   c            Crumbled low-fat goat cheese
      1/3   c            Chopped fresh parsley
      1/3   c            Chopped fresh tarragon
      1/3   c            Snipped fresh chives
      1/3   c            Lemon juice
    1       tb           Extra-virgin olive oil
 
   1. In a 2-quart saucepan over high heat, bring one
   quart water to a boil. Add the peas. Cook for about 4
   minutes, or until tender; do not overcook. Drain and
   rinse under cold water. 2. Place the quinoa in a large
   bowl. Add the peas, goat cheese, parsley, tarragon and
   chives. Toss lightly. 3. In a cup, whisk together the
   lemon juice and olive oil. Pour over the salad.
   Note: To cook the quinoa, bring 2 cups of water or
   stock to a boil in a 2- quart saucepan. Add 1 cup of
   quinoa. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and cook
   for 10-15 minutes, or until tender but not mushy.
   Drain off any remaining liquid. Fluff with a fork to
   separate the grains. Allow to cool before combining in
   salad.
