Toss the cooled quinoa in a bowl with the dressing. Then stir through the red onion, garlic, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, parsley and mint leaves. Taste and season.

To cook the chops: Heat the barbecue. Season the chops with a little salt and black pepper. Place on the barbecue for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.

Toss the peppers and red onions in a little olive oil, season and cook alongside the chops.
