      What a superb tasty salad! I found the marinade to be particularly flavourful.
      I believe my only modification was to use fresh oranges for the orange juice, as well as toasting the quinoa prior to any boiling (see recipe here for toasting quinoa- really does improve the flavour!).
      The salad lasted for about three days in our fridge, and the flavours became more intense over time.
      Great recipe!

      What a keeper of a salad! It got rave reviews from my guests. And considering how easy it was to make I'm going to do lots of repeats. I used a mixture of mostly red quinoa and it was so pretty with the cherry tomatoes mixture. I highly recommend that just for the striking visual it makes.

      Very nice salad. I didn't use any sugar, and the dressing was still wonderful! I only had 1/4 of a large red onion on hand, and that was plenty - and I really love onions - but this red one was a strong one... Definitely a keeper and I will be making it again and again. Healthy and delicious, what could be a better combination?
