      This recipe was full of new flavors and a nice change to the usual salads I take to pot lucks! It smelled delicious while cooking and was very easy to put together. They only thing that went wrong was totally my fault. I halved the salad recipe but made the whole dressing recipe and didn't realize it until I put them together! It was still good but the vinegar flavor was a little overpowering, the salad was very moist and I felt like the orange flavor (I used orange mango juice - yum!) was completely overwhelmed. I'd definitely like to try this again and see how it tastes when made properly! Thanks for a fun, new way to use quinoa!
