Substitute for balsamic vinegar? I can’t get balsamic vinegar where I live, is there a substitute? I can get apple cider vinegar, would that work?

Any vinegar would be fine, it is not exactly the same but it would be the closest substitute.

Duplicate recipe ingredient balsamic vinegar is listed twice. Is this a typo or is an ingredient missing?

How long will this stay fresh in the fridge? do I mix it just before serving, or already a day before?

It should stay good for 3-4 days and you could mix everything together when you make it. Quinoa tastes better when it’s sitting in it’s dressing
