This was delicious, but I did make a couple changes to the recipe so I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 for the original recipe. For the dressing: I added 2 cloves minced garlic to the recipe, and also about 1/2-1 tsp of sugar. I think this really rounded out the flavor of the dressing better (before it was a bit tart). I also added Feta Cheese and used Kalamata olives instead of black olives to the salad and that really kicked up the flavor. Also added an orange bell pepper.
I thought the quinoa to water ratio was perfect--I used to use the recipe off the trader joe's box, which calls for way more water, and I always had too much water after cooking. This amount was perfect; cooked 15 minutes.
I also only refrigerated the quinoa for about 10 minutes and it was still great!
We will definitely have this again!
