What could be better than quinoa salad? Quinoa Avocado Salad.
Lately I’ve been obsessed with avocados. Who isn’t always obsessed with avocados—I know! But recently I’ve graduated from avocado toast and started adding avocados to smoothies (so yum) and of course adding them on top of all salads.
This salad started out as more of a look-in-your-pantry-and-use-what-you-have sort of thing. Don’t we all have a package of quinoa hiding in the back that we’re not quite sure what to do with?
I mean, sometimes quinoa gets a bad rap. The slight nutty flavor is sometimes unrecognizable and it can end up tasting bland. But this superfood is also a superstar when it comes to taking on other flavors. The bright lemon and fresh herbs really shine through in this salad. And the avocado on top is a no-brainer.
