Full of protein and complex carbs and low in fat, just the thing for a warrior going into battle, or an average American returning from cooporate combat and looking for something quick and easy for dinner. Got this fromt the Chew cookbook, by Daphne Oz. Right up my alley!

I made this salad for my family yesterday and they absolutely loved it. I like it so much, I ate a serving for breakfast this morning. Yum! I made one small change to the recipe by adding about 1/4 cup chopped pecans to add texture. The recipe was great as is....I just love pecans so I added them. Thanks Daphne!!!

Wow, my first time to try quinoa and this salad was really delicious. I've always wanted to try quinoa and I'm not sure why I was intimidated -- it's as easy as cooking brown rice. Love the combination of the scallions and cranberries and of course, the chick peas. I did double the dressing as the quinoa absorbs it, but that's just my preference. Will definitely make this again. Made for PRMR, January, 2013.
