    A bit spicy and packed with protein. Sometimes I add grilled chicken to make it a meal.

      Really yummy, but do agree with another reviewer who thought it was a little dry and needed a little tweaking. I also added some additional salt, pepper, olive oil and a little sugar. I also used chipotle pepper powder as I didn't have canned. Yum! Thanks Melissa for a great recipe!

      I also chopped the onions and added some grated garlic and olive oil to the dressing. I omited the corn as I do not like it and added some chopped red bell pepper. I used grape tomatoes cut in half. I also toasted the quinoa after rinsing it. Nice nutty flvor.

      I am always looking for new ways to fix quinoa, so I was glad to come upon this recipe. I initially made it as written except that I increased the tomato to 1/2 cup, and chopped the onion instead of leaving it in slices. After letting the salad chill, it had a good basic flavor but I felt that it needed some tweaking. I added a little olive oil as it seemed a little dry. Also, I added some additional salt, some black pepper, and a little sugar. The end result was a salad I will definitely make again. We really loved the zinginess that the chipotle pepper added. Thank you for sharing this great salad. Made for My-3-Chefs.
