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.

Super tasty and filling!

First off, let me just say, I made a mistake and added 3 tbs soy sauce to the dressing. I was quickly transcribing the recipe from my computer and somewhere there was a glitch. In spite of this, my husband and I both loved this. He is the one that pointed out it was a bit salty. Honestly, it was salty but not too salty to enjoy since there was no table salt added.
This is a slightly prep-intensive recipe since there is a bit of chopping and dicing and a few bowls involved but it is well worth it. I used jumbo shrimp instead of scallops and it was fantastic.
I served it with another EW recipe---Elise's Sesame Noodles. My husband figured out that mixing the noodles with the quinoa salad cut the saltiness and tasted delish to boot.
We ate this accompanied by a bottle of Yellow-Tail Pinot Gris. Cheap but nice.
I'm psyched to have leftovers for my lunch tomorrow.

Tasty quinoa recipe

I've only made this without the scallops so far, but I think it's a really nice base recipe you can play around with depending on what you have on hand.

Delicious!

This was my first experience cooking quinoa, and I'll definitely make it again. It was so good I called my sister over to try it :)

Nice change from the same old dinners

I added a bit more vinegar and sesame oil than the recipe called for because I like a lot of flavor. I used thawed frozen scallops from Aldi and they worked just fine. I added 1/2 cup of sliced almonds with the cliantro at the very end and they added a nice little crunch. Worth trying if you're looking for a change from the same old dinners.

delicious and healthy
