Summer Quinoa Salad

It's that time of the week again... yup, you guessed it, another quinoa recipe! You know I am sucker for the little grain and this week I served up a quinoa salad filled with seasonal summer veggies like cherry tomatoes, avocado, and fresh cilantro. I mean seriosuly, who doesn't like that combination? For one the colors are so much fun, and you can go back for a second serving without feeling like you're going to expand like a balloon at the dinner table. A single 1/2 cup serving is only 250 calories, so this makes a great side dish at dinner, or a perfect light lunch.

Summer Quinoa Salad


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Mix all of the ingredients together and serve. 

It doesn't get easier than this.
