Pear, watercress and cucumbers are tossed with quinoa and dressed with diced kumquats, olive oil, coriander and lemon juice. If you can't find kumquats try using clementines.
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)
