  1. Great easy recipe. Like other reviewers my tweaks included adding avocado and tomatoes. For the dressing I skipped the honey but added ground cumin and a bit of chili powder.
  2. I added a little rice wine seasoned vinegar - 2 Tbspns. Worked great!
  3. Beautiful color and flavorul. The ratio of quinoa to dressing was off. I added almost another cup of Quinoa to balance the amount of dressing. Next time I would just add half the dressing to flavor.
  4. I added tomatoes and an avocado. Next time I may cut back on the oil in the dressing and add a little vinegar
  5. Really good. I added tomatoes and an avocado. Thank you for your recipe.
