As a side dish for supper or a main course for lunch, this salad gets its fresh taste and pretty color from curry powder and mint.

    Great healthy recipe but it came out a little bland; next time I will increase the curry powder, salt and pepper a bit. I cooked the currants with the quinoa to plump up the dried fruit and toasted the almonds on the stove instead of the oven. I also diced the apple instead of slices. All in all, an easy and versatile salad.

    Great flavours - I used dried cranberries and walnuts rather than almonds and currants because I had them on hand. I did not add the apples to the dish right away - I will wait until I portion it out (this is for my lunches at work this week). Great!

    I love all the flavors and textures in this salad. It's so easy to make, and feeds a crowd.

    This is a fantastic base recipe, but it's so flexible! I roasted a small, cubed butternut squash with salt, pepper and a little curry powder and tossed it in with the quinoa, and then ate it for lunch in the office over a big bowl of baby spinach greens. Delicious! I made a little extra dressing so the greens would have some moisture. Yum!

    1 cup of cooked Quinoa actually has 8 grams of protein compared to 1 cup of cooked chicken which has 43 grams. Quinoa has a fair amount of protein for a grain...Also this salad is wonderful!!!

    I love this recipe! It's delicious and flavorful. Fairly easy to make. I also added some garlic chicken to it for some extra protein, but also tastes good without it.

    Great with Bobotie (a ground lamb casserole). Martha has the recipe.

    I liked the potential of this dish, but it came out a little dry for me. I added more honey, but maybe next time I'll just reduce the quinoa like justjohanna.
