Citrus Quinoa Salad
I surfed the net for something to bring to an evening BBQ on the beach and this salad intrigued me. I didn't have all the ingredients, but my roomate Carla did (thanks, Carla!).
Turned out to be pretty delicious, and a lot of folks liked it. I'd recommend it. I wouldn't skip out on the "optional" toasted almonds...they really added a wonderful flavour.
And of course everyone can imagine what I think about adding raisins to the salad instead of the figs (boo! yuck!).
Oh, and one more thing...I used fresh orange segments instead of canned mandarins. I mean, duh.
