    dr_kaley's Note:

    I got this Recipe from "Fed up" on the Veria channel, by Andrea Beaman. It's very easy and actually really tasty! I love it. So healthy too, tons of fiber, and truly a healthy dish. Very filling, I eat it for lunch sometimes by itself. WW friendly.. I use organic ingredients The only difference is, I don;t use meat in it when I make it, she used cooked chopped chicken. I prefer it without, as I usaually pair it with a WW spiced tilapia recipe I found here on Zaar, and goat cheese and scallion stuffed cherry tomatoes, asparagus, or some other veggie.. Yum

      We love this! I have made it several times and my family eats up every time.. I added cut up chicken one night to make it our main dish. We love the viniagrette and I always double the recipe to have it for my regular salad. I ran out of quinoa one time and subbed brown rice. It was almost as good as the quinoa. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      I am making this right now - July 4, 2013 so haven't tasted yet but it sure looks fab! Question:<br/>To what do you add the cumin- to vinaigrette or to quinoa mix? It's not mentioned in recipe at all. Thanks for any help!
