    Made a few modifications, but loved this recipe. Didn't have buttermilk so just added more juice and oil. Also added orange rind for stronger orange flavor. Omitted the parsley. Goes great with smoked turkey or chicken.

    Great recipe for a side or a main dish. I just served at a dinner party as a side with CL's spice-rubbed roasted salmon with lemon-garlic spinach. There is just enough leftover quinoa salad to add some feta cheese and flaked salmon for a delicious, nutritious and ready-made lunch. (Hint: add a squeeze of lemon juice to a bit of milk and let sit. It will sour and clot in a few minutes, turning into "buttermilk" with a whip of a fork.)
