Sun-Dried Tomato, Spinach and Quinoa Salad

(I don’t really like sun-dried tomatoes. I’d probably swap them out with cucumbers. But that just speaks to the versatility of this recipe if you desire. You can top this with an egg and call it dinner or throw some chickpeas in for a little extra.)
Ingredients:
Salad
1 cup quinoa, rinsed in a fine-mesh colander
⅓ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
2 cups roughly chopped fresh spinach
⅓ cup sliced almonds
¼ teaspoon olive oil
Salt, to taste
Lemon dressing
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon salt
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
