      Made as recipe stated. Was too salty, would advise to cut salt down, or leave out completely. Would advise to add about 1/4 more quinoa. Would adjust the spices next time. Preferred it warm rather than cold.

      Just finished making this and am eating it as I type. YUMMY! Plan to serve it in tomatoes for lunch for a friend so I wanted it to have time for flavors to meld. Boy!, if it's any tastier than it is warm, I might faint! lol! Two small changes: I used toasted quinoa as I find the taste is enhanced, and I smashed some roasted almonds to use instead of pine nuts. This is sure worth making over and over again....and as you can tell from my own recipes, I have a "thing" for quinoa!
