Had some arugula from the garden that was going a little bitter, so I made this with spinach and just a few arugula leaves. DELICIOUS! I think any extra fruit would be great in this.
I’ve added a little bit of fresh mint and it was delicious. It was quite contrasting with the bitterness of the arugula, but very refreshing. As I’m not vegan, I’m gonna add some feta cheese next time. Summer in a bowl!
Wow what a find:) May 19 was my birthday! I am eating more healthy meals and found this beautiful salad with everything I love. Thank you for the recipe!! Looking forward to more.
Perfect combination! We had it for lunch today and just loved it! I wouldn’t change a thing. This is not an ‘eat something good for you salad.’ Though of course it is good for you. This is a wonderful, flavorful salad with something happening in every bite! So glad for the recipe!
i don’t care for quinoa. so can i skip it?
otherwise, it looks lovely!
Hi Pam, sure, just skip it and add lettuce greens.
I’m new to quinoa salads so don’t have many under my belt to judge against but the Memorial Day family crowd seemed to enjoy this salad. I did add mandarin oranges for the heck of it. Thanks for a successful fun new recipe.
Made this today with Trader Joe’s Tricolor Quinoa. It was very tasty, but just a little dry for my taste. I think next time I would probably double the dressing, and/or add some other fruits, like orange segments. It went very well as a side dish with some quick shrimp scampi.
Made this again today with double dressing, double strawberries and half of a mango cut into cubes. It was really lovely.
Thanks for reminding me to add quinoa, as well as fresh fruit to a salad! I really like quinoa but, I just forget about it. Big DUH!? factor going on here. This time of year I often add a handful of blueberries to any fresh greens, in the winter it’s usually dried cranberries. So I need to give fresh strawberries a whirl! With all these other favorite ingredients, wow! Also looking forward to trying the orange vinaigrette, as it sounds zippy without being overly sweet. When the weather turns hot, this is my idea of the perfect meal.
