Quinoa salad with Avocado, Tomato and Cucumber

Quinoa salad with Avocado, Tomato and Cucumber

I love this Quinoa salad because it is light, fresh and easy to toss together, yet it’s so delicious that you can serve it at your next party or picnic with family and friends.

I don’t add the cucumber until serving time, so they retain their crunch.

Buen provecho!
