      This was quite tasty -- I enjoyed it. Fresh and summery. When I make this again the only thing I'll do differently will be to reduce the vinegar (I found it a bit too tangy for my taste). Thanks for a good quinoa recipe!

      I really liked all of the ingredients that went into this dish but the apple cider vinegar was too over powering. I would have halved the amount that is recommended. I would have added more of the all spice and perhaps some ginger. I will definitely make this again with these changes. It was very quick, easy and light....great for summer!
