    velorutionista's Note:

    A simple salad, but full of healthy ingredients. I love this perpared pilaf style (i.e. no dressing), but my hubby prefers it with the dressing. You can switch up the ingredients, too (I do quite often depending on what I have on hand!)

      The combination is nice. I like the orangy taste. However, the salad needs more flavor: I think I would like to add something sour (to go with the fish) or something spicy, or anything to add some flavor.

      I just made this and it's unbelievably good. I'm on a quinoa kick right now and this is probably the best quinoa dish I've come across, I just ate it as my main course for dinner. I changed the recipe up slightly. I'm not a huge fan of cold salads, so I went ahead and sauteed the bell pepper along with half an onion and the corn. For the herb, I just used parsley because that's what I had (though I think cilantro would be really good). For a final touch, I added a couple handfuls of chopped pecans and BAM! A most delicious, healthy meal. I was kind of skeptical of how the orange dressing was going to mix with the flavors of the sauteed veggies but it worked out really well. It made a lot and it fills you up fast, so I'll gladly be munching on this for the next few days!
