"Great dish- gluten free to serve as a side or beneath a grilled salmon steak or a grilled chicken breast piece. Similar to a cous cous salad. If gluten free- ensure GF tamari or soy sauce is used Serves 2 as a main with some salmon or chicken, or 4 as a side serve. Editted to add- this recipe is from http://aww.ninemsn.com.au/food/freshtv/785505/salmon-with-toasted-quinoa-salad- with regards to the name- there is no actual toasting of the quinoa done. I think the name is just in reference to the colour of the dish perhaps"

"This is my type of recipe. I love to eat whole grains. The only change I made was to add a touch of honey to balance out the lemon juice."
"This was my first time using quinoa grain (have used the flakes once) and WOW what an experience. Not sure if it came out right as it was not a very individual grain but a little gluggy, I used 2 full cups and it was completly absorbed in 14 minutes but the taste was fantastic. I made a full recipe and we each had a quarter and the DM has claimed left overs for her lunch tomorrow, a big plus getting her to eat vegies and something really healthy and to thoroughly enjoy. Will definately be using quinoa more but maybe cut back the liquid to see what results I get but as was definately made easy eating for the DM. Thank you **Jubes**, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 15."
"Delicous and colourful salad. Made for Aussie Kiwi Swap, Dec 2010"
"This was a very tasty, healthy salad that is quick to put together. I like that fact that it transports and keeps well, too. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!"
"Not going to rate this recipe as I haven't tried it yet, but it does sound good :). Many people toast their quinoa before cooking it. Put it in a dry pan on the stove and toast until a golden brown. Proceed to cooking it as usual. Toasting it improves the flavor (not that it isn't already good), giving it a 'nuttiness'. Adds about 10 minutes to prep, but it is certainly worth it."
"This was really good, the lemon and soy sauce give it a lot of flavor. I always toast my quinoa before rinsing it."
"Refreshing and healthy salad. Made as directed, subbing a red onion for the Spanish onion since I have yet to find one in the states! Thanks, Jubes! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap 48, January 2011."
