"I made this salad at my restaurant with couscous and a few other differences. Since I can't eat wheat I made some changes to suit my "at-home" needs. Lamb Strip loin is out there! Make your butcher your best friend. Segments of blood oranges can easily replace the puree-- though their season is fairly short. That change-out might leave you wanting a bit of 'sauce'..."

"This was super yummy, however the recipe says olive oil and lemon juice, but neither are mentioned in the process. I just wonder where it was meant to be used. I ended up cutting the lamb beforehand (1/4") and cooking it in the olive oil. I just seasoned the lamb with salt. I also accidently bought blueberries instead of blackberrys (the little surprise bursts of tartiness were nice though). I was unable to source the puree so I just left the orange out. All in all, I'm really glad I gave this a go, it was my first venture using Quinoa, so it made it a good experiance for me. I feel great for making something so delicious and so healthy."
"This was a great meal salad. Would never have thought fo the combination but will definitely make it again!!!!"
"unbelievable flavor! I used chicken, marinated in extra dressing, instead of lamb, and it was still awesome. Next time I will definitely use the lamb. I also have trouble with wheat, so the quinoa was a nice surprise for me - I love middle eastern food, and never thought to sub it for the couscous! Thanks!"
