Gluten Free Quinoa Tuna Salad

I use Quinoa for everything. I throw it in chilli and pie crusts, I use it in granola and quiche. The possibilities are limitless. I usually cook up 4 cups with some chicken broth once a week and use it in almost everything I cook. The easiest way to use it and my favorite is to eat it plain as a side dish instead of rice. This recipe dresses it up a little and turns it into a yummy tuna salad.
