This is a great light salad recipe and very flexible with what you can put in. I use 3/4 cup quinoa (cooked with veg broth) as otherwise I think it needs more dressing. I also use 1 diced jalapeno instead of the pepper flakes (much better!) - you could use other kinds of pepper depending on the level of heat you want. I typically add some diced red bell pepper and corn and if it's going to be eaten within a day I add a diced avocado. Yummy and healthy!

Very easy to put together. Can't believe there's not meat in this dish! Followed the recipe and in addition added some yellow peppers.

This was the first time I have every tried quinoa and it was delicious. BF liked it too, and he hates cilantro. Kind of tasted like pico de gallo in rice. I used chick peas for black beans, key limes, and a large salad tomato with seeds removed. I think I found my new favorite grain. Thanks!

I had some Quinoa and was looking for a way to try it - but nothing complicated. I came across this recipe and although I had to substitute petite diced tomatoes for the cherry tomatoes and finely diced sweet white onions for the green onions, this still was really good. I'm a convert. I will use more quinoa in the future!
