“Quinoa - an ancient food from South America - is actually a seed. But it counts as a whole grain and is featured in the Latin American food pyramid. Its golden color and nutty flavor make it a perfect partner for smooth and creamy avocados. You'll find quinoa in your supermarket with other grains. Avocados are another favorite from South America and found in the pyramid. Serve this as a side, a salad or a main dish. And take a look at the nutrition analysis – only a few calories, no cholesterol and little sodium, but with monounsaturated fat, protein and fiber!”

This was excellent, the whole family enjoyed it. I added black beans to give it more protein because I served it for dinner. I would give it 5 stars but it seemed like it needed a little something else in terms of spices. I will definitely make again and experiment with some herbs or spices. Thank you, I love Quinoa recipes!

Fantastic! The only thing I changed was to add about 1/4 C chopped cilantro. Wonderful blend of colors, texture and flavor.

Absolutely delicious! This would be great in the summer with gazpacho. I made it without celery because I didn't have any on hand, and it was great. I'm sure, however, that the celery would taste very good in it.
