Open the can of chickpeas and rinse them. You can keep the liquid from the can and use it later as aquafaba, if you want.
Chop all the ingredients, including the cherry tomatoes, olives, onions, fresh basil leaves and any other optional ingredients you'd like to use.
Put everything in a bowl, then combine with the fresh lemon juice, olive oil, vinegars, salt and pepper.
Serve your quinoa salad with any main dish, fresh bread or tortilla wraps.
