    This is a most incredible salad! This was my first time using quinoa and what a way to do it! I didn't have red wine vinegar so substituted for a Balsamic/fig vinegar. I didn't put salt & pepper (which is unusual for me) because it tasted to good without. Hubby loved it so much too. thanks! - 1/3/09
