Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
Once the quinoa was cooked, the dressing looked like way too much. So I only used about half of the dressing (lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar), and none of the salt since the chicken bouillon seemed to add enough salt flavor. I also used chickpeas instead of chicken to make it vegetarian. With those changes, I quite liked it. My husband didn't care for it much so it might not be for everyone, but I would make it again for myself.

Pork Chalupas
This got rave reviews from my family when I made it for Sunday dinner. I have never cooked dry beans before and was worried that they wouldn't cook all the way through, so I boiled them beforehand and let them soak for an hour before putting everything in the crock pot. I don't know if boiling made a difference or not, but they were cooked perfectly. Great flavors. It does make lots!

Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salsa
This was so good! I have no hesitation in giving it five stars, and it's very easy to make. I made it as a side for a family taco dinner and it stole the show. I made it exactly as written and served it with blue corn chips, but my brother and I agreed that it would be just as good (if not better) served simply as a salad since it's chunky and a little hard to scoop. I was also surprised at how well the leftovers held up on the second, and even third day. I think the lime juice must keep the avocado from browning.
