Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
I really wanted to like this...but it just wasn't that good, just OK. I wish I hadn't used the Italian dressing on it -- I wound up sprinkling every bowl of it with lemon anyway, but I think a teeny drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon would be sooooo much better than the Italian dressing, which just sort of overpowered everything (even without using a ton of it) and took over the whole flavor of it. I'd also triple the amount of herbs, if possible -- I doubled what it listed, and using a mix of fresh basil, oregano, thyme and rosemary, and that was good, but more would be way better (again, because it was overpowered by the dressing). I also added some cubed smoked turkey to it, since my husband always asks for it anyway. He ate it, but this was sort of a "meh" dish that, with so many good recipes out there to make instead, I probably won't repeat.
