Quinoa salad with Avocado, Tomato and Cucumber
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups of quinoa
- 4 cups of water
- 2 cups diced tomato
- 1 cup diced cucumber
- 1 avocado peeled and diced
- ½ cup of red onion finely chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Juice of 2 limes
- Wash the quinoa in a fine strainer. Place the water, salt and quinoa in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
- In a medium bowl mix all the salad ingredients and set aside. Toss the cooked quinoa with the vegetables mixture and serve.
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.
