    Chef #895975's Note:

    From the cookbook Veganomicon, this is a tasty, healthy salad. Author Moskowitz says that with every bite of this dish, new flavors emerge: "Mango, scallions, cilantro, red peppers, you never know what you're gonna get." I am not a vegan, but made this for a vegan bridal shower. It was my first experience with quinoa, and I enjoyed it very much.

      This is super, super good. I made only a couple changes to the recipe: the mango I had to work with just totally fell apart, so I threw in a pint of raspberries that needed to get eaten. I also tossed in a small handful of crushed walnuts. I'll definitely make this again--hopefully with a mango next time!

      This salad is so colorful and pretty. I used red quinoa and added a cup of cucumber to mine, which was perfect with the rest of the flavors.
