I made this recipe for the first time 2 years ago when introduced to it by a friend and fell in love! It's so easy, so tasty, and very good for you. The measurements for the most part seem to work. I do agree about 8 cups being a bit much and I also only use 1/2 a red onion (it can be overpowering with the whole), but after awhile you can just eyeball everything to your liking and it will work out just fine. Sometimes I use mixed greens with spinach for variety, but that's more of a preference thing. I've also added red quinoa to the mix, which also worked out well. I also don't use all of the dressing, but will sometimes use it with leftovers to moisten the quinoa mixture -- again, that's just preference. All in all, it's definitely a favorite in our household and a perfect summertime salad. Enjoy!
