Veggie quinoa salad with Dijon vinaigrette

A quinoa salad recipe with loads of colourful veggies and an easy vinaigrette. Cook the quinoa with the water as you would rice (works in a rice cooker too).

A nice summer dish. Easy & light yet packed with protein!

Not bad. I did not like the dressing after I made it. I added more vinegar because it was too oily. I also added a little sugar. Once I tossed it with the veggies (I used way more veggies and less quinoa) it was pretty good. Took it to a school function and a lot of people liked it, including my 14 yr old daughter. I thought it was pretty good, while not my favorite. It is healthy so I will keep the recipe for an occasional side dish.

Made a few changes: omitted the olives (having falafel as well - salty enough!) and added chopped fresh cilantro and orange pepper.

As per other reviews, I made half the amount of quinoa, but the dressing the same amounts except only half the oil. it was extremely tasty, and the fact that it's good for you is just bonus.

Very light and refreshing. This will become a regular at our house! I cut the quinoa to 3 cups, and I increased all the dressing ingredients by half except the oil because there was a lot of quinoa, and it would have been bland without the extra dressing. I used olive oil because we prefer its flavor, used grapes tomatoes cut in thirds, and added about 1 cup of chopped carrots. The only thing I would do different next time is to cut the quinoa to 2 cups.

This is the first Quinoa recipe I have ever made and I have to say it is DELICIOUS!!! Like other reveiwers, I only used half the amount of oil (just to cut out some fat) and only have the amount of quinoa, because I am the only person in my house who will likely eat this. :o) You could pretty much use any veggies you have one hand, but its the dressing that makes this salad sooooo good! Thank you for sharing

I would've rated it higher, but there are ONLY 5 stars. Love, love, love this recipe! Since there was so much quinoa I didn't combine it with the the veggies until I served it at the table and everyone drizzled the dressing to their taste. I'll use the leftover quinoa in another recipe. I also substituted summer squash for one of the cukes.

LOVE the dressing (although I cut the oil in half)! Great combo of veggies & quinoa. Very quick - the hardest part is chopping the veggies. Yum. It's a keeper.

I loved this! What a fantastic way to use quinoa. I cut the quinoa and dressing in half, but not the veggies. Excellent! I will definitely make this again. Thank you!!
