Colorful Quinoa Salad
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + cooling
I made this for Christmas Eve potluck. The vegetarian and gluten free members of the family really enjoyed it. I used an herb blend quinoa which added a nice flavor, just not as festive as I had hoped. Will certainly make again.
I used a quinoa/brown rice blend. This was fantastic as a side to burgers, and rolled into a multigrain tortilla with some grilled chicken. Definitely will be making it again!
Delicious! I used chicken broth
Love this recipe! I go a little easier on the bell peppers - substituting one of them for a red onion or avocado.
Very pretty salad. I found a similar recipe online that had added a can of cihickpeas and one chopped avocado. I really liked the additions. I, too, like another reviewer do not care for the lime juice so I didn't put in quite as much as stated. I kept testing it until I found the right amount.
Loved this salad! I used tri-color Quinoa; added 1 cup of Edamame and I also used lemons instead of limes. The dish looked amazing and everyone raved about it at our cookie Holiday Party! Thank you!

I loved the combination of quinoa and veggies, but I didn't care for the lime & ginger flavor of the dressing. It's a shame that I wasted all those veggies by using a salad dressing that neither my husband nor I liked. I may try this again (halving the recipe next time) and use lemon instead of lime -- or maybe trying a balsamic vinegar dressing.... Upon reviewing the recipe, I think I accidentally doubled the lime peel, which made the salad distasteful. I do plan to make it again, but I will try a different dressing.
I thought it was good and a nice change from the "normal" salad, but I felt that it was a little bland. I added extra salt to see if that was what was missing, which helped, but still seemed like it was lacking in flavor.
This is a great recipe! Bright, colorful, flavorful and fresh!
