    I love quinoa and I loved this recipe. It was a hit at Thanksgiving this year with a huge family that had never had quinoa before! I doubled the pears and used an entire pint-package of kumquats. I also used more like 3 c. watercress and an entire bunch of cilantro because that's what I had. Lastly, I used only 1 T. of the olive oil.  -  28 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    If I could give this more stars, I would. This is my current absolute favorite salad! You've got to try it.  -  10 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    A wonderful and refreshing salad with quinoa, fairly simple to make. I added more kumquats and chopped pair for 'sweetness' and color.  -  29 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
