  • Very soothing voice nice recipe try adding feta for the complete Mediterranean touch! Please reduce the background music it’s too loud and harsh!

  • Looks good. I wouldn’t use canola oil though. It causes inflammation in your body. Avocado oil or coconut oil is flavorless. Maybe try cooking the quinoa in a veggie stock to give it more flavor. Nicely made video.

  • I love Quinoa. I will substitute cilantro for parsley. Never tried dried tomatoes, now I will. It looks yummy. I have to try it. I will check your other videos.

  • Liked you salad everything but the “.GARLIC ” I love garlic but I would of chopped them into smaller pieces, I wouldn’t want to find a big piece in my plate everything else looked great will try it and tell how it came out, thanks for the recipe…..

  • Hey Chef, I’m a true fan of Quinoa since I can’t eat rice anymore. Can you substitute vegetable or chicken stock for the water when cooking it?

  • The Mediterranean cuisine
    The Mediterranean cuisine is the food of the areas around the Mediterranean Sea. Not all Mediterranean countries use the same recipes, when someone states “Mediterranean cuisine” it means they share a lot of core ingredients but not necessarily recipes. There is no traditionally Mediterranean recipes, the traditional part equates to the recipe owner of a specific country not the group itself. There is no Traditionally Mediterranean recipes Period!!

  • I make a greek quinoa salad with red onion (raw), tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, olives, lemon juice and oregano. Sometimes I add raw baby spinach or wilted kale. Delish! I also tried your other quinoa recipies <3. Thanks guys!

  • encore encore encore great performance n zesty taste of good will to all hungry, soulful, beastfull beings. absolutely fabulous clarkstar

  • Made just now it was great.thanks for the tip regarding garlic,as i always felt it required an additional taste.
    I didnt have spinach so I substituted it with peas…
    No fetta cheese either…but loved it.

  • Great idea roasting the garlic in a cast iron skillet.

    Try toasting the quinoa first with a spice of your choice and add a little oil of your choice. Use vegetable or chicken stock instead of water.

  • Olive oil is better 2 drizzle over the garlics instead of canola oil just saying. It’s a great video & a delicious salad! Thank you.

  • I NEVER write comments on these recipe thingys. But I just wanted to let you know that I followed your recipe and this is the BEST quinoa salad I have ever had. No joke. Thanks.

  • alright buck you shop at kroger? where you finds that quinoa? I’ve looked at mine and we have the boxed stuff for side dishes in the rice section

  • Your. Oice modulation is awesome, but the music? That music make me feel as watching a 80’s porn movie. Recipe is excellent, but I will add olive oil instead canola.

  • Yesyour voice is fabulous but the thing I like most about this is that you made it about the recipe-not about YOU!!!! I will definitely try this recipe.Thank you!!!

  • Chef Buck… youz killin me with ‘da hole in ‘da donut being air… “cuz you need air to breathe!”

    I love your videos for simple comic effect… but I think I’m gonna actually try some of these quinoa dishes. Trying to get healthier too.

    Thanks!

  • I’m starting to eat a bit healthier and just found your channel while looking for some tips. These recipes look great and I’m definitely gonna be trying them out, thank you so much for them!

  • Hi Chef Buck, I will be making this salad! Looks very good! I ran across your station looking for cauliflower pizza crust, love it. Love your Utube station, I am hooked! BOOM! ��

  • Yummy. I always squeeze lemon�� slices before eating my individual quinoa salad. Just me. #oliveoil #BlackOlives #Substitute Cilantro
    Thank you for recipe! ��

  • That is really something I noticed when I lived in the States: in the same supermarket, the same product might be stocked in different areas of the store. Like caged hen eggs would be in one place, and then the free range eggs would be 4 aisles down. That doesn’t really happen here. Eggs is eggs (also, quinoa is quinoa).

  • I’ll try this recipe. I make a version of this but with fresh tomato, cucumber, spinach. Instead of onion I use chive and like you addedlots of fresh parsley. I did not add a whole head of garlic, but I love roasted garlic & olives so I will try it.

  • hey Buck, long time no boom. Food looked good, anything that tastes good hot or cold has my attention. hey, donuts are healthy for you because of the nuts. boom.:) Health and good luck to us all this year.

  • Sounds and looks very yummy… and if it is as healthy as that hole at the end it must be something good… 😉
    Never tried that quinoa stuff (at least not knowingly) and never noticed it here, but now I went just now to Amazon India checking for the rates… if these rates there are also more or less what I would have to pay in any organic bio nature supermarket (I guess I could get that in such fancydancy stores but not in normal stores), then 1 kg of that stuff is costwise equal to 15 kg of the (good quality) rice I use… or equal to a lunch buffet for two, in one of my favourite roof top restaurants here…
    Means: wow… mmm, wow what costly! 😉
    But ok, maybe it is available in smaller packs… or as single seeds… such as: ey boss give me 10 of these quinoa-seeds, I won in a lottery! ;-)))
    hahaha, joking… nice to see (and hear) you back on youtube, thought already you extend your Christmas holidays and stay til Easter 😉
    Happy and healthy 2016! 😉
