      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!

      This was very good ~ I was a bit skeptical at first, but the flavors are excellent. I used red quinoa, and had to use regular apple juice as I had no concentrate. I did add a bit of salt as suggested. I definitely like this well chilled. Thanks DiB's for a great new quinoa recipe. Made for ZAAR COOKBOOK TAG, February 2010!
