Quinoa salad recipes?

Anyone have a tried and true, delish recipe for a quinoa salad?

I always make the same 2 salads and would like to branch out.

TIA

I'm curious what are the two recipes that you always make? I just started cooking with quinoa and the only recipe I've tried is the one the TPLmommy posted and we really like it!

Re: Quinoa salad recipes?

I made this one last night and we really liked it. It calls for black quinoa but I used white.

Re: Quinoa salad recipes?

I usually make quinoa with vegetable broth instead of water, add some cilantro, chopped tomatoes, lemon juice, pepper and a touch of curry powder when done and it's delish

Made this one last week for DH and ended up making a second round of it because we liked it so much
