  • Place quinoa and 2 ¼ cups of Campbell's broth in a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until all the liquid is absorbed; about 15 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
  • In a blender, combine basil, olive oil, pine nuts, garlic, parmesan, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Add the remaining ¼ cup (60 mL) of broth and blend to combine.
  • In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, mozzarella and red onion. Toss with quinoa, pesto, parsley, and basil until well blended.
  • Grill or char lemons on the grill or in a pan. Serve salad on a platter with lemons and squeeze lemons over just before serving.
