apple, avocado & quinoa salad

quinoasalad

I love this salad because it’s so simple and easy to make.  It’s the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

Here’s how you make it:

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 red apple
  • 1/2 cup cooked (& chilled) quinoa
  • 1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 T Balsamic vinegar

Directions

  • Cook quinoa and let chill in fridge for a few hours. I usually cook a big batch at once and store it in the fridge for the week.
  • Slice up avocado.
  • Chop apple into smaller cubes.
  • To make the dressing, shake up the vinegar and the EVOO in a small container and drizzle over the salad.
  • Mix ingredients together & enjoy!

 

Note: if you’re going to make this for lunch, wait to chop up the avocado and the apple until right before you eat the salad; they brown too quickly.

 

Options to add:

  • Cheese (makes everything better!) – I suggest feta or goat’s cheese.
  • Spices to dressing – sometimes I like to add cracked garlic pepper.
