Mmm curried Quinoa.. really, how can you go wrong with this? For a full lunch add some chicken or tofu.

Excellent salad, it was a total hit at a potluck, apricots are a nice change for the usual raisins. I find this salad better cold, leftovers the next day are even better just added the toasted cashews at the last minute to keep their crunch. Thanks
