    I chose to omit oil. Added 1/3 cup white quinoa to 2/3 c red quinoa and 2 cups water flavored with 1.25 t. knorr tomato chicken broth granules. I added tri-beans, as that's what I had.

    This tasted great! The dressing is so easy & a little spicy, it would be great on other salads too. Only change I made: used a microwaveable package of quinoa/ brown rice blend (also doubled the recipe so we’d have leftovers ??)

    can this be frozen in single serving portions?

    This salad is amazing! It takes no time at all to make, and it's a great way to use up any leftover quinoa (or couscous or even rice) that you have on hand. I thought that all the flavors were perfect together. I'll be making this again and again as a healthy side dish!
