The salad tasted ok but it was the most unattractive dish I have ever made. It was a very unappetizing color. I added tomato to brighten it up. The picture here shows a more coarse lemon zest so maybe that would help, too.

I really liked this! The flavours were good. I had black quinoa on hand, and that really added something in terms of colour and vibrancy.

We love this dish. I add red paper flakes and a little more lemon juice.

Well my bad. I had it in my mind that I wanted to cook up a bunch of quinoa to have in the fridge to add to this and that this week but I had also saved this recipe awhile ago. Needless to say I not only cooked up my quinoa in advance and thawed out the artichokes but I also headed out to the kitchen about 9 PM to make this. THEREFORE all I did was mix all the ingredients together, although I omitted the chicken broth entirely. I, too, used a bit of black quinoa in with the regular; scallions in place of the spring onions, dried thyme. After mixing I added enough olive oil to my liking. I made it tonight for tomorrow's lunch and I think it will be great!! I will follow the recipe next time :)

This recipe is great. I love this dish. It's really quick and easy and taste delicious. It's not the prettiest dish, but great nonetheless.

Made this a few weeks ago, my family has been asking for it ever since!! I added a little more lemon juice, and it isn't very pretty, but it's so good! Making it again tonight!!!

Oh my! This was the first time I've ever made quinoa and man oh man, was this ever good or what?! I bought quinoa on a whim at the grocery store and brought it home. I didn't think ahead as to what to make and after browsing, I went with this. I did make a change, but only because I had to go with what was in my kitchen. I used marinated artichokes because that's what I had. WOW! My husband loved this and it's now going to be a staple in our home. Many thanks for sharing this!

I'm new to quinoa and wanted to try a recipe with items I already had in my kitchen (minus the lemon peel). I decided this was going to be it. The only thing I changed was I added some red bell pepper and some chicken but only a little since I'm new to this and didn't know how it would effect the taste. It looked nice with the little pepper pieces in it & most importantly my family loved it!!! (I'm feeding it to my 1yr old now) Plus I liked my additions so much I added much more later like a half a cup of red bell pepper and half a breast of chicken. Yeah!!! Liked it so much, I tried another 3 different versions. Since I ran out of the white quinoa, I tried the red. It was good but liked the white better. The original recipe with the additions I noted is my favorite version.

I haven't made this yet but was hoping to use fresh artichoke. How would I prep the artichoke to use in this recipe?

This is the best quinoa recipe I've come across! I used marinated artichoke hearts instead of frozen and that added such a great flavor. Will definitely make this again and again!

recipe was good but the serving size is really small, maybe this should be listed under condiments.
