For Day 2 of BM# 17, I made this Curried Quinoa salad with Nectarines & Snow peas. It's a coincidence that this month's Vegetarian Times magazine has a whole spread of summer's best main-dish salads at can be made in under 30 minutes. This recipe is one of the 5 others that they featured.I had to buy a jar of mango chutney for this dish, but I think its well worth it. This chutney is sweet and tangy unlike its spicy Indian counterpart (especially the chutneys from South India). The salad itself turned out to be tangy, spicy & sweet...
