    I was missing half the ingredients but it was excellent and is a great reminder to eat quinoa

    Very good and easy to make I suggest doubling the sauce recipie so you have enough (and leftovers). Also it is important to use Maple syrup instead of just the cheap sugary stuff

    Perfection, I used fresh organic cherry tomatoes and omitted the olives.

    I added grilled chicken and kept the feta for last to put on top. This will make the salad last longer in the refrigerator. I also grilled the onions with the chickpeas. Great roasted flavor!

    Yumilicious. Used fresh chopped tomatoes instead of sundried and extra kalamatas. The Recipe made a lot but it didn’t last long - everyone had seconds.

    I'm in love w this recipe!! It's become one of my favorite sides for all grilled meats due to it's wonderful aroma & explosion of flavors. I left out the tomatoes & basilico because I didn't have them, & substituted syrup w honey.

    flavor as directed is...a little bland? be easy with the salt though as some of the ingredients are pretty salty and that flavor will travel in the quinoa very easily.

    Delicious salad tastes very fresh. I added fresh garlic and fresh mozzarella cheese for some added flavor. Dressing was a wonder compliment to the dish. Will definitely be making this again.

    Healthy and yummy. I used cilantro instead of basil.

    Tasty! Used all ingredients as directed. I thought the dressing was too sweet so I added more lemon juice, garlic powder, and pepper, but while it was still sweet, the flavor of the kalamatas and other veggies really mellowed the sweetness. Sundried tomatoes aren’t really noticed so either double or take out.

    Perfect summer side dish - light, refreshing, and a little tangy. I didn’t have the olives on hand, but still delicious.

    I am pretty sure the serving size is not correct. Yummy salad, lots if veggies and whole grains. Paired it up with honey pepper grilled salmon fillets. Good stuff.
