Cook quinoa in a medium pot of boiling salted water, uncovered, until almost tender, about 10-15 minutes. Drain in sieve, then set sieve over same pot above 1 inch of simmering water (bottom of sieve should not touch water).
Cover quinoa with a folded tea or kitchen towel. Cover sieve with a lid (it does not need to fit tightly) and steam over simmering water for about 8-10 minutes until fluffy, tender , and dry. Remove lid and pot from heat. Let stand covered with towel, 5 minutes.
Combine shallot, vinegar, zest, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in oil until emulsified.
Transfer quinoa to a large bowl and stir in fresh herbs and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
