The recipe my wife made was for a Lentil Quinoa Salad from Melissa d'Arabian's "10 Dollar Dinners" show. It was very quick and easy to make and it did have an intriguing appearance.
While we liked it, it did not strike us as a "five star recipe" which is how it is listed on the Food Network site. It just was not that exciting of a flavor profile. We have made other dishes like Giada's Herbed Quinoa that we have liked much better.
That being said, I think it might be a good dish for a family with a couple kids that don't want flavors that are too bold but yet the adults want some variety. In that context, I can see where people will rate it higher.
There was only about one serving left after the family reunion, so it was a success in that context. Also, my wife took that last serving and spruced it up with some paprika and she said it was much better. Therefore, we might well make this dish again, but we will add to its spice profile.
