I have NEVER made a quinoa dish as delicious as this! The fast prep time also makes for a stress-free, post-work meal. I tweaked the recipe only a smidge: for both my quinoa and brown rice, I used vegetable broth, doubled the cayenne pepper to 1/2 teaspoon, cut the 2 cloves of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt and instead used 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt, added 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, and added one diced avocado. Affordable and convenient. Absolutely fantastic! Thank you for sharing!!

I made this recipe for company and it was a hit. I did make changes-used all pinto beans, all quinoa, garlic powder instead of fresh, and lime juice and rice vinegar for the dressing--had no red wind vinegar. The main thing I changed was to leave out the oil completely. I compensated for the liquid with extra vinegar and a little water. The salad was delicious and not dry at all. Will definitely be added to the summer salad rotation. Thank you!

I love quinoa salad and when this one had the word mexican in front of it I figured it couldn't lose. I was right. It is ridiculous good! Of course I made changes because: don't like corn in salads, don't like raw garlic in salad(so I used garlic powder), didn't have pinto beans -so I used black beans. Oh, and I am addicted to chipotle chili powder so I used a smidge of that for part of the chili powder. It is a great base salad recipe to work your own little personality into!

I'm a big fan of Quinoa salads and I stumbled upon this one because I was looking for one that didn't have lime in it and had red wine vinegar. I had to make some adjustments as I didn't have any beans either. I added the everything along with cucumbers, left out the salt and pepper, I like to add individually afterwards. I cut back the oil to 2/3 and added 1/3 of the vinegar. I haven't even let the flavours marinate together yet but snuck a bite and it is really tasty. Looking forward to what the family thinks tonight. I know they will love and this one will be a hit. Definitely give it a try.
