Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad
August 06, 2011

I think for 5 stars, no adjustments should have to be made, but with my adjustment it turned out to be a very nice salad. I agree that the salad was pretty dry (is it supposed to be? I've not had quinoa before like this - and just learned tonight that quinoa is a seed, not a grain); but with the addition of at least 1/4 cup Newman's Own Light Lime salad dressing, it was much improved. TIP - in case you are short of time: I read the instructions and knew the quinoa had to be chilled before adding the veggies. However, it took much longer to chill than I expected. So, I put it in my medium aluminum bowl, filled my large aluminum bowl with ice water, put the medium bowl into the large bowl and stirred the quinoa until it seemed cool enough to mix everything else into it.
