    MarraMamba's Note:

    A lovely salad where the steaming of the quinoa is very important to get the right texture. Boiling won't give you the light fluffy texture.alone, so for any salad recipe using quinoa use this two cooking methods.

      This was just what I expected, easy and healthy. I love the steaming of the quinoa. I never thought of that before.
