Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Raisins would be a good addition. I've made such a recipe and it was super. Totalling the listed individual ingredient calories, I get 85 fewer calories. How do you get 370.7 calories out of this? I must not understand something. Submitted by:

I used a tad less vinegar and oil and did not add salt. It was good and a meat-free source of protein. Submitted by:

This salad was awesome,, this is the first time I ever made a recipe using Quinoa,, so had never tasted it. It was so good I love it,, this is a keeper. Now that I know I like Quinoa,, I will try new things with it as well. And I have read the great Nutritional benefits of it also. Will make again. Submitted by:

To make the calories more manageable, I used 3/4 c. of quinoa and 3 T. of olive oil. For a pitch-in, I garnished it with avocado slices sprinkled with lime juice. W/out the avocado, 1/8 of recipe is 213.8 calories, 7.6 g of fat, 72 g of protein. 1/6 is 285 calories, 10.1 g of fat, 9.6 g of protein Submitted by:

I recalculated the nutritional information on here (because of the diff count on the email), and it looks like the recipe here should be for 6 servings, not 8. The email is for 8 servings. Just what I found myself--take it or leave it! :) Submitted by:

Fantastic flavor. Cut way back on the olive oil to lower the fat. Used as a hearty "salsa" for tortilla chips and as a topper for enchiladas. Submitted by:

Fabulous! I didn't use any oil; didn't cook the corn - prefer it raw with all its enzymes intact; made the beans from scratch; and didn't add any salt. Other than those few changes, I made the recipe exactly as described. It's Great! Submitted by:
