  • While the quinoa cooks, stir together the anchovies, vinegar, sugar and olive oil in large bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Add the quinoa to the bowl with the parsley, onions, currants, capers and pine nuts. Squeeze the lemon juice over the salad and toss to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings before serving.
