“A tasty combination of quinoa, avocado, cumin, and lime juice with fresh veggies for a delicious meal!” - by Gitano
Original recipe yields 2 salads
- Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes. Spread into a mixing bowl, and refrigerate until cold.
- Once the quinoa has chilled, gently stir in the tomatoes, cucumber, and onion. Season with lime juice, cumin, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Divide the spinach leaves onto salad plates, and top with the quinoa salad. Garnish with the avocado slices to serve.

"delicious! I added in chopped parley and chick peas and omitted the spinach, onion & cukes (only because I didn't have any on hand) - and it was still great. Husband loved it. I used lemon instead ..." See moreof lime and added a little EVOO to make a dressing."
