Rinse quinoa several times, then cook in a large pot of salted water about 20 minutes until done. Drain and rinse gently.
Add next 8 ingredients (through pepper) and mix gently in a large bowl. Chill for 30 minutes to an hour.
Meanwhile, blanch carrot strips (cook for 10 seconds in a large pot of boiling water, drain and rinse).
Toss carrot strips with all remaining ingredients. Chill about 30 minutes.
Divide quinoa among plates, top with vegetable ribbons and serve.
