  4. Love your blog and love this recipe! Very fun idea!

  5. I love how wholesome and colorful this quinoa salad is! I’d love to try it sometime!

  6. Vijay is da’ bomb!! This recipe is fantastic. Love the flavor combo!

  7. Love these flavors, especially that cumin lime vinaigrette!

  8. OH my goodness Vijay, this is what I’m going to make for lunch tomorrow…. it looks amazing.

    • Haha, I hope you do! It’s been my lunch for the past few days. I’m not so good at the “cooking small portions” thing =). It actually holds up *really* well!

  9. Tex Mex runs through my veins too so this looks like the perfect summer dish for me!

  10. Such a beautiful salad! And that vinaigrette sounds amaaaaaaazing!!!!

    • Thank you Kate! I should have made more dressing and just kept it in the fridge. I bet it would be great on any salad or even drizzled over some grilled chicken or veggies.

    Yummy! I’m making this asap!

  12. I can never get enough quinoa! And I love the sound of this vinaigrette! Yumm!!!

  13. I am not a quinoa fan… but to be fair, I only tried it once. So I am on the hunt for a new recipe. I think I will try this one… looks yummy!

    • Thanks Tracy! The vinaigrette is pretty strong so it does a good job of coating the quinoa. Instead of using rice or another starch, I like how the quinoa is a healthier alternative to give this some bulk.

    This is truly a beautiful quinoa salad. It’s full of everything I love!

  15. Hey Vijay!! So fun to see you here. And I am LOVING the recipe you brought. I love tex mex anything. Combined with quinoa? You rock.

  16. I need to get on the quinoa train!

    • Hi Steph! I bought a few bags at Trader Joe’s a couple of weeks ago and am finding it to be really versatile! Pretty sure that everyone else knew that before me a long time ago…

  17. Lovely! I’ve been craving these flavours ever since Cinco de Mayo. A great celebration of quinoa’s versatility.

  18. This here was meant for me. It has all my favorites, wrapped in a avocado which is also a favorite. My mind is blown. Pinning – thank you!
