1/2 tsp crushed red chili pepper (or 1 tsp Sriracha sauce)
Place the quinoa along with 2 cups salted water in a medium saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce to the lowest heat setting. Simmer until water is completely absorbed and quinoa is fluffy, about 20 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together.
Add the quinoa to the dressing and mix well to combine.
Add the veggies, onions, cilantro and cashews.
