    LizAnn's Note:

    Everyone who has tried this loves it. I came up with this recipe as an alternative to pasta salad. I buy all the ingredients at Trader Joes. Sometimes I get a real craving for this salad. Its tastey, crunchy and healthy. Yum!

      Easy to make and pack for lunches! Based on another review, I substituted Kalamata olives (used half the amount) and used broth instead of water. Delicious!

      Good salad. I used Kalamata olives and always toast my quinoa before rinising it. I followed the directions and used water, but really missed the flavor broth usually gives it.

      I think this is a good mix of flavors, but I guess I don't like quinoa. This was my first time tasting it. I would enjoy this mix with rice or orzo instead of the quinoa I think. However, DH tried it and couldn't stop raving about it. So I guess if you like quinoa, you will love this salad. If not, try the add-ins with rice or pasta--it is a great mix of flavors.
