This makes such a nice side dish. I even like it cold as a salad the next day! 06/28/08 - UPDATE!! As I have already said, I like this for a salad too.Today I added some chopped egg whites, chopped black olives, some scallions (green and white). I then tossed with one tbls each of EVOO and red wine vinegar. Realllllly good! 07/24/08 - ANOTHER UPDATE! Wow, instead of using the fresh garlic, use roasted! I had several bulbs roasting while I was making dinner. They smelled SOOO good and that is when I figured it could only make this dish better. Just leave out the minced garlic and when the dish is finished, stir in about five squeezed out chopped cloves and then serve. YUM! 07/29/08 - STILL ANOTHER UPDATE! I have really gotten on the quinoa bandwagon. Put together two more recipes, so if you like quinoa as much as me, take a look. I'm not bragging, just sharing a good thing....Two Grain Spinach Toss and Quinoa Plus Casserole.
