    The only thing this is missing is a little spice. I took this to work and we added some crushed red pepper. Otherwise, wonderful!

    I made this for lunch.I left out the chickpeas (personal preference), added bell pepper & onion. This is a keeper.

    I made this to bring as my lunch everyday to work this week. Delicious! For added veggies I used a whole cucumber and 5 tomatoes. I also doubled the dressing. And I added 1 lb shredded chicken. To cook the chicken I seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic. Then I cooked on 1 side in some olive oil in a skillet for a few minutes, turned them over, added 1/4 cup water, and put a lid on the skillet. I cooked for a few more minutes, then once cooked, I removed the chicken, let it cool, and shredded it into the salad. Super easy and I would make it again!

    I've made this several times and everyone raves about it. In fact I rarely have leftovers. I added/changed a few things (personal preference). I added 2 cloves chopped garlic, 2 tablespoons of fresh basil chopped, and I substituted balsamic vinegar for the red wine vinegar. I also sprinkled more balsamic vinegar on mine after dishing it up. My family is addicted to balsamic vinegar so don't feel like you need to add it.

    I made this thinking I'd be the only one in the house to eat it. The first and last time I made quinoa for the family my husband made it clear he did not care for the stuff. I served this salad over a bed of kale and he went on and on about how delicious it was - then ate a second helping! Oh yes, and I loved it too even though I did not have all of the fresh herbs. I'll be making this again and again.

    I made this for company and it got rave reviews. I changed a few things... omitted the mint and used fresh basil instead of oregano. I thought it was a little dry after sitting, so I added some Lemon Balsamic vinegar and a little EVOO to it. Everyone went back for seconds. It also was good for leftovers. I had some cooked corn on the cob leftover and I cut this off the cob and added it. I WOULD MAKE IT AGAIN.

    Very good! I roasted the red Quinoa for 5 minutes with a little olive oil before cooking, it gave it great flavor.

    Tasty salad. I added some green onions, red bell pepper and some greek seasoning. I made this salad to accompany a grilled London broil that I sliced into thin strips. It made a nice lunch the following day.
