I made this about a month ago and have made it min 10 times since then. Just two of us, so it last a few days afterwards. We love it and never get tired of it!!

such a great staple to keep in the fridge. I sometimes use less quinoa than the recipe calls for and it is still great.

I didn't have green onion so I used a small purple onion instead. Great dish for summer and easy and fast to make!

I made this, liked it, and had good reviews from those with whom I shared it. I like things spicy so added jalapeño to the red pepper, used walnut oil in place of EVOO, and found Inca Red quinoa visually satisfying. I don't have Spike and have used lemon juice in place of the lime with decent results. I like this to fill half an avocado for lunch :)
