Ingredients
  • 1½ cups quinoa (I used red quinoa)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1¾ cups cooked beans (or 15 oz. can - I used white beans)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • ½ cup olives, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup onion, diced
Dressing Ingredients:
  • juice and zest of two limes
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro ( or 1 tablespoon dried)
Directions
  1. Add quinoa and water to a large pot. Cook over a medium-high flame until it reaches a boil. Lower flame, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Place quinoa in the refrigerator to cool.
  3. Once the quinoa had cooled, add avocados, tomatoes, olives, and onions.
  4. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. Pour the dressing over the quinoa and veggies. Toss to coat.
  6. Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator to keep cool until you do serve it.
Notes
Add time to let let the quinoa cool.

I serve this over a bed of greens.
