This is a flavorful , attractive and healthy meal. I followed the recipe and only substituted shrimp for the scallops. It was delicious and filling. This would be an excellent salad to bring to a potluck gathering or for a luncheon, just add a fruit dessert.

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've never toasted quinoa...yummy! My whole family, including 3 kids, loved it! It wasn't a Rachel Ray 30 minute meal, but worth the additional time. Will definitely make again!
I thought it was very easy to make, take left overs to lunch. Easy to add shrimp instead of scallops also.
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 :)
