    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

    We skipped the dressing altogether. As for the broccoli and peppers, we blanched them due to the water quality where we live and that worked fine. Even with those changes, it turned out wonderful. I don't know if we'll make it again as the main goal was to teach the young woman who lives with me about cooking with quinoa, but as it made a pleasant, healthy salad, we just might.  -  03 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
