Loved it. Used a can of drained diced tomatoes, but otherwise following the directions exactly.
So easy and good to make. I used canned tomatoes and rotel but am excited to make this with fresh tomatoes, I'm sure it will be even better! We also made burritos out of this; put the salad in with some cheese (warm it up in the microwave or eat it cold - great both ways!) and add some sour cream. Very good!
I didn't have scallions, so I used some chopped red onion. I added a little extra cumin and a dash of chili powder. This is excellent over baby spinach or as a dip with tortilla chips. Use it as a salsa in a wrap etc. DELICIOUS! Just don't try to eat it right away or you will be very disappointed. This needs several hours in the fridge for the flavors to meld & build. Definitely use FRESh ripe tomatoes and hot peppers! Canned=blech!
What a tasty little salad. Easy to sub various things depending on what you have on hand. I love the mix of flavors as listed in the recipe, but I can see experimenting as well. Thanks for posting.
This was a great dish. I made an entree out of it and used a cup of quinoa (with 2 cups of broth), like other reviewers. I also followed other reviewers and doubled the spices and increased the lime (I used a whole one). I also used fresh tomatoes and toasted then rinsed the quinoa first. All the flavors go really well together in this!
4.5 Stars!! This was my first time using quinoa and it was a success! I doubled the dressing and added about 2/3 C of corn and it was amazing. :)
Wow, this is really really super! I doubled the cumin & coriander because 1/4 tsp didn't seem like much (and because I love cumin & coriander), and I used a can of diced tomatoes, drained. It turned out deliciously! Thanks for the recipe.
I rinsed and toasted the quinoa first; eliminated the bell peppers and subbed fresh corn instead; and drained and deseeded 6 romas for the 4 cups of diced tomato (oh, I also doubled the entire recipe when i made it for a function). This was such a refreshing spring/summer salad! A definite keeper!! Thanks so much for sharing - a real nice side dish to have in the recipe book!
This was my first try with quinoa. I followed the other recipe/post that recommended rinsing thoroughly and toasting the quinoa. It tasted great. I doubled the quinoa because I felt like if it is called quinoa salad, I should see more quinoa in it. I also added a bit more cilantro. It was a great recipe and I will be making it again.
This is a great summery salad. It is easy and healthy. What more is there to say! I made it just as written (but with no cilantro because I just don't like it!) and served it on tortilla chips. It was wonderful! Thanks for the great recipe!
