I thought it was very easy to make, take left overs to lunch. Easy to add shrimp instead of scallops also.

This scallop-studded quinoa salad gets an exciting texture from crunchy snow peas, red bell pepper and scallions. Feel free to substitute shrimp or thin slices of chicken for the scallops.

I have been cooking up plenty of meals from this website so far this week, and this one is my favourite!!! My family loved it so much, with its wonderful flavours! This one's a keeper in my book!
Not even knowing what Quinoa was before this recipe, I was pleasantly surprised how good this dish turned out. Love the taste of the whole dish together. Definitely should have dried the scallops off a little before cooking, as I didn't get them as brown as I would have liked, but this dish was amazing! Definitely one for the books :)
I really enjoy making this recipe. It's not too difficult and turns out so fresh, flavorful and healthy. Easy to overcook, so it's important to watch everything closely while cooking. I do make a few twists: I add mushrooms and crushed red pepper. I also add a bit more sesame oil & soy sauce than the recipe calls for.
I cooked this dish today and it was the first time I cooked Quinoa. Went very well. Didn't get any Coquille St. Jacques so I made it with Tiger Prawns instead. It was just perfect.
