Instructions
  1. Using a sieve, rinse the quinoa. The outer casing is bitter unless rinsed. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add quinoa and spinach. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until all water have been absorbed. Remove from heat and let sit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa/spinach with cheese, tomato halves, beans, cucumber, olives and the optional pepperoni slices that have been quartered.
  3. Shake the dressing well and pour 1/2 cup of the dressing over the salad; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Just before serving, drizzle remaining dressing over salad; toss to coat.
