Lots of flavor in this dish and so refreshing on a summer evening! I had to make some substitutions (pearl couscous instead of quinoa and lime instead of lemon), but wanted to write a review since no one else had reviewed it yet. The citrus flavor is nicely offset by the rich, salty nutty-ness of the sunflower seeds. The huckleberries surprised me by not being distracting. Thanks for the great non-dessert huckleberry recipe! I'll be making this again. Read More

There no huckleberries to be bought here, I used pomegranate seeds! It is tasty but I felt it needed a bit more so I added some fresh basil chopped to it. The green makes it even more colorful and added the bit of flavor I was looking for. Maybe diced cucumber I’m thinking. This really is great as is and serves as a base to be creative with depending what you have on hand. Read More
