Quinoa Avocado Salad

So Delicious.  So Fresh!
Quinoa Avocado Salad
What You Need

1 Cup Quinoa Cooked in 2 cups water, chilled
1 Avocado, sliced into small bits
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1 Roma Tomato, diced
1/2 Red Onion, finely chopped
Cilantro (about 1/3 cup chopped)
Hot Sauce or 1 chili pepper minced

(I saved the shell of the avocado for plating --see picture!)

Mix the Lime juice, spices, hot sauce (or chili pepper) and all chopped/diced veggies in a mixing bowl. Fold in the cold quinoa. 

Serve with Grilled Chicken Breasts, over lettuce, in a lettuce wrap, as a side dish, or as pictured, in a cute little avocado shell. Simple. Delicious. Viola!

It's Hard to believe something can be Vegan, Gluten Free, and still taste Amazing!  Well.... BELIEVE IT!  This is killer!




  1. Sounds delish! All of my favorite ingredients in here. I love getting new ideas of how to make quinoa.

  2. I am so excited that you both found this to be tasty -- I love Quinoa, and why not add avocado!
