Interesting blend of flavors that even my five-year-old enjoyed. I am acquiring a taste for quinoa or rather getting used to the texture which is part of why I don't love this recipe. If you do love quinoa you will probably give this recipe a higher rating than I did. The other reason is the amount of work that goes into making it. Overall flavors are very good, especially the dressing.
Couple hints: 1. Make sure you skip the draining quinoa on paper towels step-that is too messy. Next time I will use a fine sieve and let the water drip into the sink while I prepared the rest. 2. I doubled the recipe so half of it can be tossed together tomorrow for lunch. (Stored ingredients in separate containers so it won't get soggy). I like to double Cooking Light recipes when I can since a lot of them require so much prep and time-that way I can justify all the work that goes into them.
