  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
  2. Stir cooled quinoa, watermelon, bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, mango, pineapple, and chopped cilantro leaves together in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk wine vinegar, honey, pineapple juice, lime juice, and garlic together in a small bowl; drizzle in canola oil, whisking constantly. Pour dressing over quinoa mixture; toss gently to combine. Place salad in a serving bowl; garnish with lime slices, jalapeno slices, and reserved cilantro leaves.

The amount of oil in the dressing tuns this fresh salad into an oily mess.

Wonderful flavors and textures. I think recipe should read 1/4 cup oil, which gives vinaigrette the usual 1:1 ratio of acid to oil. NOT cup and a half. I did add some lime zest, just because I l...

I made this recipe exactly as listed, however I took other reviewer's advice and only used a quarter cup of oil instead of 1 1/4 cup of oil. It turned out very nice. It's not the best salad I've...

I wish I had paid attention to the reviews and cut down on the oil. It was an oily, soupy mess. I will try this again, the flavour was quite pleasant.
