avocado quinoa salad


{photos by Kari}

One upon a time, my  old roommate Robin (aka. thehungrybirdie) introduced me to Quinoa (said Keen-wa) salad and I've been rather obsessed ever since. It's so easy to make, extremely good for you, but mostly just so delicious! AND there are countless ways to serve it.  Anywho, my little sister made this particular batch with a recipe from HonestFare.com. I've been slightly obsessed with this website lately: it is absolutely packed with amazing yummy and healthy ideas like avocado smoothies, sounds crazy but it was so so good! You can find this quinoa recipe HERE

This looks delicious Danni, what a simple and tasty combination. It seems like Kari is turning out to be quite the little chef too!

So I was inspired and made my own version of this salad last night! It was amazing. I added asparagus, onion, eggplant and goat cheese to your recipe and served it with scallops. I wish there were leftovers!
