I added shrimp to the scallops and some crab meat. It was delicious.
A Home-Run! 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 :) Pros: Delicious
Delicious and healthy Easy to make and delicious weeknight meal. I used the same ingredients and followed the instructions, except to quickly sautee the snow peas as we don't want them to taste too raw. Came out great and still crunchy! My husband said I should make it again...
Sooooo good!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!

Yummy 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!
Okay 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. Pros: Easy Cons: Flavor was okay
Wowser! A GOODIE 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. Pros: no cons, al pros. Very good satisfying meal
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.
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. Pros: delicious and healthy Cons: a bit labor intensive for a weeknight
Made that recipe for dinner last night, we both loved it. Looking forward to making it again..
This was really good. I used turbot (a type of fish I had never heard of before but it was on sale) and just broke it into chunks instead of using scallops. We had some left over and ate it for lunch the next day and it was even better! I'm making this again tonight!
I have made this recipe several times -- and get rave reviews. Sometimes I simply make the quinoa on its own, and then add the dressing afterwards -- I have substituted shrimp and smoked salmon (chunk style) as well, which were well received. The dressing is wonderful -- bell pepper gives it crunch -- as do the snow peas.
