Cook quinoa according to package instructions. (Don't forget to rinse it beforehand using a fine mesh strainer to remove the bitter coating on the outside.)
While quinoa is cooking, chop up cucumber and red onion, then drain and rinse canned chickpeas.
Once quinoa is done cooking, let it cool, equally divide ingredients into four airtight containers; store in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Serve chilled and enjoy!
Alternate serving suggestion: This dish would also be delicious with shrimp if you wanted to add an extra protein source for a heartier lunch or dinner!
