I just made this, and gave it three stars, because as written, it seems like it would be terribly bland. I'd give it four or 4.5 stars with the addition of garlic, cumin and cilantro (per others' reviews), and I used a spicy flavored vinegar in place of the lemon juice. Perhaps it will improve with age after a few hours in the fridge and some feta tossed in before serving, but as is, the ratio of quinoa to veg seems out of whack (too heavy on the quinoa), and it needs a briny element, like the feta and/or capers. It's a good base recipe, and I'm sure I'll keep it in the summer rotation, but it definitely benefits from tweaking per your family's tastes. UPDATE: I liked this just fine, but when I asked him what he thought of it, my husband said he could understand why the fresh mint was in there, but he didn't like it. I was sorry, cause I added it right before serving. Maybe it will mellow with time, and I forgot to add the feta; maybe that would have helped balance the mint flavor. I'll probably make this again, but I think I'll skip the mint.
