Chopped jalapeños and crushed red pepper can be added if desired. Make this salad your own by adding other fresh veggies or removing ones you don't like. I always soak onions, that I use raw, in ice water while preparing the other ingredients, it seems to mellow their bite somewhat. Drain them well before adding them. I used Inca Red Quinoa in this recipe, use whatever one you prefer.
