Another winner…my picky family wasn’t interested, but I savored every bite for my lunches this week!
This was tasty…after I had to nix the dried fruit. (Don’t kill me! Ha!)
I really liked it! Over greens + some chicken
I was abruptly reminded I was human when I realized I’s used the right grain but made the wrong recipe! It turned out pretty well anyway!
Loved this recipe! Here’s my post:
Very lovely. A hint of spring on a snowy day :-)
Happy Birthday, Joel!
This is MADE for summer barbecue season – definitely more-ish!!
next time, I’m going to faff around and add a little feta to the mix for some savouriness …
Feta sounds like a fantastic addition! I succumbed to the potential for ‘where’s the meat’ and added chicken.
I think barbecued chicken would be outstanding in this salad!
We really enjoyed this.
I added chickpeas and Havarti cheese to make this salad heartier. I will definitely be making this one again!
I really loved this salad. I can’t wait to make it again.
Yay! I am finally healthy enough to participate again! We really enjoyed this salad.
I am late to the Quinoa Party but loving it now that I am here.
I served it as lettuce wraps for something different. Loved it.
Christina loved this!
I agree, this is one that I will make again, perfect for a picnic.
We enjoyed this and I ate it all week for lunch! I’m off to Vegas for the weekend, so I’ll check out everyone’s blogs next week. Have a great one!
Not something I was overly fond of but glad I made it. I learned a great deal about quinoa!
I adapted ours a bit, using fresh oranges, almonds, spinach, asparagus, and parsley, and served it with thick, juicy lamb chops and harissa sauce. Looking forward to mixing with other ingredients!
This is going to be my potluck salad this summer!
ummmm…I kind of messed up the recipe order. Making the quinoa tomorrow! http://spikebakes.tumblr.com/post/4251192976/garlicky-crumb-coated-broccoli
Happy Birthday, Joel! Here’s my link + a recipe for asian inspired quinoa:
I haven’t participated in FFwD in a while but I had to try this recipe. My variation uses Red Inca quinoa for added nuttiness and color.
It was good, but I think next time I make it – it will be better!
Great and beautiful salad — off for a hike!
A winner for everyone at my house (with and without fruit)!
And Happy Birthday Joel!
My husband and I both loved this recipe. This is going into regular rotation at our house!
Added vinaigrette over warm quinoa for better absorption, then the fruits. Toasted sliced almonds added just before serving for extra crunch. We had it for lunch today as the nor’easter blew in…..loved it and will make again.
I’m happy to be posting my link here;-)
I really enjoyed this salad! Will definitely make again! I did add a bit of cinnamon…I thought it needed to be kicked up a notch!
Loved it! The day after it was even better.
Very unusual and a fun adventure. We have both agreed to experiment with the rest of the quinoa on hand (thank you Costco for selling such large bags :)
Good basic recipe that invites lots of creativity. I made mine with a Moroccan flavour with dried cherries, apricots, figs, pistachios, almonds, black sesame seeds. And of course, pomegranate molasses!
If I wasn’t part of this group, I’m not sure that I would’ve tried this recipe. However, I’m glad that I did as I’ve now found a new favorite. At the end of my post, I give my ideas on how I will create a ‘new’ dish for the summer using fresh vegetables. Can’t wait to try that, too!
Great use of quinoa.
Really liked this one!
It was OK, but not a favourite:
Mixed results at my house:
Think you can’t find a parallel between quinoa and “The Last Temptation of Christ”?
Think again! http://gaaarp.wordpress.com/2011/03/31/quinoa-fruit-and-nut-salad-ffwd/
I’m loving the fact that Dorie offers you the option of making variations on her trusted recipes. I’m looking forward to making this again and punching it up with more of a Citrus taste with Grand Marnier and Zest!
This is definitely a recipe I will make again.
We enjoyed this recipe. I made mine with raisins, apricots, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, parsley and cilantro.
I really liked the dressing for this recipe!
So easy; so good!
Good dish. And so flexable. Just use up the extra nuts, fruit and herbs and you have a great meal. Thanks Dorie
Got it wrong, but will make the correct recipe tomorrow o -:
Love a meatless high protein meal that seems to be filled with dozens of flavors!
I’m still envious of gaaarp’s dried fruits though! Amazingly beautiful!
We had this for dinner tonight with greens and yogurt – it’s a lovely meal all on its own. Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow.
Sorry – I’m late again but I’m here! Made it for breakfast (pattern developing if you remember my linguine post). Didn’t absolutely love it but liked it a lot and can’t wait for the flavors to keep developing. Definitely has me sold on continuing to work with quinoa in various ways. Versatile and oh so healthy. Have a great weekend everyone!
A perfect dish for a long, sunny and warm Southern California day. Loved it!
Um, really loved this one!!! I think it was more than 4 servings, but I’ll be enjoying leftovers :) Served with salad and yogurt as suggested. Really felt healthy when I was eating it!!!
Here is my link for the delicious Quinoa Fruit and Nut Salad! I loved this recipe, was a really refreshing dish for summer:-)
Doing a little catching up: Here’s my link for the Quinoa, Fruit, and Nut Salad…a lovely lunch indeed. http://grandmaskitchentable.typepad.com/grandmas_kitchen_table/2011/04/french-fridays-with-dorie-quinoa-fruit-and-nut-salad.html
Like Kayte…playing catch up! I could learn to enjoy this regularly as a salad addition! Maybe seasoned a little differently…??
