Quinoa Wilted Spinach Salad
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
I have made this several times now. No matter who the crowd, it's always gobbled up. Perfect in every way. Sometimes I add some mandarin oranges which go very well with the rest of the ingredients. We also like the quinoa cold. Thanks for sharing!
My husband and adult kids thought this salad was delicious. I substituted chopped sweet onion for the green onion and reduced the amount of quinoa, probably by half. The toasted pecans were a great addition. I would not add anything else--there are lots of flavours that go really well together.
I wasn't impressed. I liked the idea of a quick, easy, healthy meal, but this wasn't doing it for me.
This salad is great! Took it to work for lunch to share and we all liked it a lot; I'll be making it again. I substituted lime juice (didn't have any oranges), and chopped red onion, and reduced the amount of quinoa as others suggested. I'll be making it again soon. I'll add mandarin oranges next time, I think they'd be a great addition.Update April 2014: Made this again, this time I made the dressing as written, substituted toasted sesame seeds for the pecans and added mandarin oranges - EVEN YUMMIER! You'll love this one, folks!
Not my favorite quinoa salad, but one that I'm willing to eat again.

Excellent salad! Was out of red wine vinegar so had to use apple cider vinegar instead and it tasted great. Also used finely chopped sweet onion instead of green onion. Next time I think I'll try it with grilled chicken.
Great salad. I cut the quinoa in half as someone suggested (and because I'm still trying to break my husband in to quinoa) and substituted diced sweet onion for the green onion, added diced cucumber and diced strawberries. Big hit, thinking about adding apples next time. Definitely will make again.
Not a fan of the quinoa, might leave it out next time.
