      As written this was only a 3 star for me but it only took a minor change to bump it up to four. I had to double the dressing! After the quinoa cooked... I knew I'd made a mistake. Out of our family of 4, I'm really the only one who will eat it. Even then, I'm not always a fan. I'm going to have trouble eating it all. (It made about 6 cups) If I make this again, I will half the quinoa but leave all the other amounts the same. It has nice color, the orange flecks are pretty from the carrot. I think it would benefit from some diced red pepper as well to give it even more color. The flavors would blend well with a bit of cilantro. For my leftovers, I'm considering adding some pomegranate seeds.
