Could use a little more dressing flavor. Try adding more vinegar or dressing next time.

Kudos to Amanda! This is a beautifully tasty salad. My entire family, from the youngest grandchild to the most senior, loved this salad. The only thing I did was add about 1/4 - 1/3 cup (loosely packed) fresh chopped cilantro and there wasn't even a teaspoonful of this salad left. Thanks, Mom, for submitting this recipe. P.S. I wish I had snapped a photo, because it was also visually beautiful. (I also used red quinoa.)
