"Quinoa has a light, fluffy texture when cooked, and can be used as an alternative to white rice or couscous in most dishes. The arugula has a rich peppery taste, and has an exceptionally strong flavor for a leafy green which goes well with the slightly nutty flavor of the quinoa."

1 1/2 teaspoons

Very good! We enjoyed this salad. Used Agave, about a tsp. Used regular quinoa as I didn't have red and cut the oil in half. Also, did't use any goat cheese. The flavors went very well together. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe!
My BF did not like this at all. I liked it OK, thought it was a bit much on the tangy/sour side with the vinegar and goat cheese so maybe if I make it again (just for myself) I'll go easy on one or both of those ingredients.
I LOVE this salad! I used regular quinoa and omitted the sugar. I'll be making this regularly.
Colorful, tasty salad! I ran out of quinoa, so used mostly millet. I omitted the salt, and changed the arugula to spinach. We didn't need the cheese! I'll be making this again soon!
My sister and I really enjoyed this salad. I didn't have arugula on hand, but I bet it would be delicious. Instead I used the fresh spinach I had in my fridge. I cut down the oil quite a bit, skipped the onions, and threw in some chopped almonds. This even kept well for lunch leftovers the next day!
What I loved the most besides the taste was that when I had leftovers, salads usually go bad in a day once you've tossed it with the dressing. Because of the arugula this actually keeps well. I was taking it to a potluck so I assembled it all then tossed it with the dressing right before I served.
So delicious and easy! I left out the sugar in the dressing...making for the second time in as many days:)
The photograph doesn't do this salad justice!! This salad is wonderful!!! Can't wait to make it again.
