used boneless, skinless chicken breast (cut up in small pieces) instead of scallops - terrific!

From EatingWell: March/April 2009
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 had made quinoa once before and it didn't turn out well so my husband was less than thrilled to try this, however, after one bite he was hooked. I'm pretty sure he did breath or talk while eating it all!
I actually like this recipe cold better - more like a salad!! I will add different veggies to it as well - lots of crunch and flavor!
I wish that this recipe wowed me like it did everyone else. I thought it was bland and didn't love the way the flavors came together.
This was a delicious dish. I followed the recipe but knew as soon as I saw it, it would need something for a little more kick. I used 1/2 cup fresh cilantro and I added a seeded chilie pepper. Was perfect for our tastes. Thanks for a great idea. I am going to try it next with grilled chicken.
