    I made this yesterday for lunch! Let me just say it is delicious! I have never made or eaten quinoa before…I am hooked now…I used red quinoa and added extra lime like you said and avocado…its like a pico salad! yum yum!my kids ran from it but more healthy yummy goodness for me!

  2. Welcome home Monica! I’m trying this recipe tonight, it looks perfect. We’re having a girls week here on the North Shore with some of my girl friends who have come as far as NYC! We all love salads! Mahalo, Penny

    Will definitely try this …once we hit summer again! Right now in Melbourne we are having daytime temps of 11 degrees so. My growing cannot be filled boys are craving hearty warm filling meals…and then want to know what else they can have to fill up on. Where do they put it??

  4. When I think of summer, I think of fresh fruit, and barbecues. I love to grill everything possible (or have my husband grill, :)) keeps the kitchen cool and brings us all outside. I love summer. (And yes I’ll be trying this salad too!) XO

    1. Oh yes, grilling. I also love to barbecue everything possible. Summer is pretty great, isn’t it? 🙂 Aloha-

  5. I love quinoa–I make your other quinoa salad all of the time, so I know I’ll like this one too. I was pleasantly surprised that my kids all liked quinoa in a salad too!
    Yum–Love your recipes!! thanks.

    1. So glad you liked the other salad and isn’t it great–My kids love quinoa too! It’s like a small victory to find really healthy things that kids actually love!

  6. Yum! I love everything in this! And yep—I’m with you, Salads and summer go together! I also think of strawberry shortcake and garden fresh veggies that we only get in the summer. I only wish it lasted longer!
