Minted Quinoa and Cucumber Salad

I made this to go with dinner tomorrow night, but it's so good that I can't stay out of it, so I'm not sure it will make it to the dinner table tomorrow!

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sliced english cucumber
1/2 cup fresh mint
1 jalepeno
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Put the water, quinoa, bay leafand salt in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes, leave to cool.

In a food processor pulse together the mint, jalapeno, salt, olive oil and vinegar.

In a medium bowl mix together the cooled quinoa, sliced cucumber and the mint sauce.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
