Nona's Famous Macaroni Salad
I appreciate the inspiration from this dish to use radishes the way one would use red onion for some kick. I will likely make it again. This is a good dish, but the recipe as written is just the starting point. Here's what I did: used a 14oz box of whole wheat macaroni pasta, one bunch sliced radishes, 6 celery stalks, what little green onion I had in the house plus a couple garlic scapes I had (they're like green onions except garlicky), 5Tbl mayonnaise, a dash of white wine vinegar, and then plenty of salt, pepper, and Old Bay seasoning. It took me a while to keep adding spice, stir, taste, repeat. It's a simple dish, yet satisfying and I look forward to seeing how the flavors deepen the second day.

Winter Vegetable Hash
Adding a poached egg over the top, and sprinkling on salt and pepper, are ideas straight from a restaurant that make this dish an even better meal.

Curried Citrus Quinoa with Raisins and Toasted Almonds
Agreed that not all the dressing is necessary-- just pour some on, taste, and add until you're satisfied. I had extra. I also agree that you do not need to wait for this dish to chill before eating it--it was great both warm and at room temperature. We also found that cumin works fine in place of the curry powder if you don't have curry. We thought it made only about three servings, so I would certainly double this if I had enough ingredients. It is a delicious curry-flavored dish, so if you don't like curry, you won't like this (reminds me of curried couscous salad).
