Everyone loved this!

Usually don't like quinoa, usually don't like tabouleh. This was incredible. My two picky kids ate it all! They asked for it! As daughter is 6 yr old proclaimed vegetarian, great way to get complete protein with veggies and my 3 year old son helped make it.

Great recipe with one modification

The first time I made it, it was way too bitter, so I made sure to rinse the quinoa VERY well the next time I made it. It was still too bitter for my taste and more bitter than what I've had at the PCC deli. This time, I cut the lime juice in half and it was perfect!
