    Made this beautiful salad today but left out the broccoli, added red onion & unsalted sunflower seeds- it turned out delicious! Will definitely be making again.  -  12 May 2017

    I just added a fourth star to my rating. At first, the flavor of the sweetness and the lime with the vegetables didn't really work for me, but adding some dry roasted almonds balanced the sweetness for me and turned it into a really delicious dish.  -  29 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    We love this salad. The only change I made was to reduce the quinoa to 3/4 cup. I didn't have a cucumber but think that will add to the flavors. This will be a go to recipe!  -  29 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
