This salad was a big hit at a pre-Christmas dinner party, but that amount of dressing really overwhelmed the salad and made the quinoa too wet. I ended up making more quinoa to mix in and adjust the balance. I strongly suggest that when making this salad, you start by adding just part of the dressing, taste, then add more until you're happy with the taste and texture.
