I think this has potential but it is missing something. Would love to come back to this recipe in a few months and see if anykne has suggestions.
I chopped up 1 red onion and I could have used much less. The onion completely over powered the dish. Also, my husband and I thought it could have used more lime.
I have been looking for a good quinoa salad for awhile. I am willing to give this another try if anyone has some suggestions.
Outstanding gluten free summer salad. Made it per the directions except that I zested the limes into the onion and pepper mixture. Served it with avocado sections on the side. The family want it every day in place of potatoes, rice, or pasta.
I made a 1/2 recipe, and used only white quinoa, since that's what I had. This is a delicious summer cool salad--we loved it!
