    Excellent balance of flavor and so easy. Paired with fresh cucumber and quinoa it made a most satisfying lunch. I actually forgot to add the salt and pepper and I feel that it was not lacking in any way. This would also be excellent as a grain bowl addition. I will definitely keep this in the rotation for use on salads, in bowls or just as-is.
