  1. Excellent!! Served over warm quinoa with black beans, cherry tomatoes and avocado. Wonderful combination of flavors in salad. I used food processor to chop together cilantro, onion, garlic and chili pepper.

  2. We loved this. I wanted to use up some brussel sprouts so made it for lunch yesterday. My partner tried the left overs and had no idea what the green vegetable was so I don’t think the anti-sprouts crew will recognise them in the dish. I didn’t have any spring onions so used one shalott instead.Used toasted pumpkin seeds as a garnish.

  3. This looks great to me, however I’m thinking of serving this at a dinner and I know those in attendance won’t like the brussels. Could they be substituted with anything else? Thanks so much!

  4. This slaw looks so healthy, nourishing and delicious. I love that you added quinoa too – what a power and nutrition filled salad!

  5. I absolutely love this ! It’s such an innovative way of preparing quinoa. Thank you

  6. Oh YUM!!! This is a very easy sell for me♡ I adore shredded brussels sprouts (or sprouts in any form) and this “slaw” looks unbelievably delicious! I love the flavors you used and will absolutely be preparing this dish very soon! Thank you for sharing the deliciousness! Cheers 🙂

  7. This is not a hard sell for me. I like unique and something a little different for salad. I first tasted quinoa in a salad. So I think it goes hand in hand. Perfect Mexican twist for a bit of a jolt too.
