    This is a great light salad recipe and very flexible with what you can put in. I use 3/4 cup quinoa (cooked with veg broth) as otherwise I think it needs more dressing. I also use 1 diced jalapeno instead of the pepper flakes (much better!) - you could use other kinds of pepper depending on the level of heat you want. I typically add some diced red bell pepper and corn and if it's going to be eaten within a day I add a diced avocado. Yummy and healthy!

    Very easy to put together. Can't believe there's not meat in this dish! Followed the recipe and in addition added some yellow peppers.
