Curried Quinoa Salad With Cranberries

"You can only find quinoa in healthstores here. And not all quinoa products are (yet) available. But OK, when I found this recipe I was glad I could make it. Be sure to rinse the quinoa before boiling it. If you can't find quinoa you can use either couscous or bulgur."

    This made a very nice lunch for me. I did toast the quinoa and then cooked it in veggie broth, as I believe that adds a lot of flavor to grains. I used only 1/3 of the soy sauce, and it was plenty salty for me. I do think that walnuts or some other nut would add to the flavor. Next time I would reduce the honey just a bit and add perhaps a bit more curry powder. A handful of cooked chickpeas added nutrition and made this more of an entree salad, and the chickpeas go well with the other ingredients.

    This was great - we had a BBQ and this was a big hit. I had to replace cranberries w/ raisins and dried cherries and added cliantro. yum! thanks!

    What a pleasing use of one of my favorite grains. The flavors on this dish really come together quite well. The curry flavor is very light, which worked well for my guests. I should mention that the salad was much better after sitting in the icebox for a few hours, and even better the next day. Well worth a little planning ahead. Thanks!

    We liked the unique flavor here. It's not a strong curry flavor, which is fine with me. The salad is good, but I tried to serve it as a vegetarian main dish. Not so great. Really, it's like cole slaw: tasty, but you wouldn't eat a big bowl of it. This salad is similar- good as a small side dish.

    Nice quick weeknight meal. For our tastes I left out the honey and cranberries, and halved the red pepper flakes. We served this as a main dish, so it fed two of us.
