This salad is wonderfully fresh and very filling. It has a nice, smooth flavor that is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. It was inspired by Maria's (of Two Peas and their Pod) Black Quinoa Salad. If you are looking for Vegan or Vegetarian meal ideas, they have a pretty good arsenal. And everything I've tried of theirs is very, very good.
- 1 cup dry red quinoa
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 4 green onions, diced small
- 1 avacado, diced medium
- 2 tomatoes, diced medium
- A small handful of cilantro, chopped small
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
Meanwhile, chop your veggies and have them ready to add to the quinoa.
Make your dressing: in a small bowl combine lime juice, olive oil and cumin. Whisk together and then drizzle over your salad. Toss with a fork to coat evenly and enjoy!
