Something a little out of the ordinary with this recipe. Quick to whip up and makes quite a large quantity. Seemed a little bit light on taste to me but maybe I didn't have enough salt added to the quinoa when it was cooking. I used white quinoa as that was what I had in the pantry. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap March 2012
I made this recently but without the mint as I didn't have any on hand. I will use it next time. I used some canola oil in the dressing and a bit more ginger. Great recipt, friends loved it too, thanks for posting.
This was fresh tasting and DD (toddler) loved it too! I used white quinoa, freshly squeezed lemon juice, unrefined extra virgin olive oil and sea salt. I would make this again.
