QUINOA AVOCADO SALAD

Wow.  I think I might just live on this salad for the rest of my life.  Hearty, flavorful, with lots of healthy goodness included.
I met someone recently, who abhors avocado, cilantro, and especially, feta cheese.  Three of some of my favorite ingredients.  To not like avocado?  The other two, I can see - it seems people either love Cilantro, or hate it.  Sometimes feta cheese can be hit and miss too.  But avocado?  Poor soul, she does not know what she is missing is all I can say!
1 cup of cooked Quinoa
4 inch slice of an English cucumber, deseeded, quartered and chopped
1/2 a large Avocado, cut into chunks
1/2 cup finely minced Fresh Cilantro
3 small green onions, chopped
1/2 a celery stalk, halved and sliced
2 Roma Tomatoes, chopped
salt and pepper
3 Tblsp. Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
juice of 1/2 a fresh Lime
Feta Cheese - crumbled
Place all the ingredients in a bowl, tossing well, then add the crumbled Feta Cheese on top.
I'm going back for seconds....

  1. I used to despise corriander. But I just figured that there had to be something about it as it was in so many recipes. I started leaf by leaf, a bit more each time, and now I can't imagine cooking without it! Great recipe indeed!

    1. Rebeca - I was exactly the same! The first time I tried Coriander - I just thought it was plain, downright nastiness! Then a few times later, I was in heaven! Go figure! 🙂

    1. We love all kinds of salads in this house. It is interesting, I know a few people now that can not tolerate Quinoa. Rice in this salad would be yummy too!

  2. This lovely colourful quinoa salad reminds me of the lovely hot Summer. I love to eat salads like this one! Looks very appetizing! Yummy too! 😉
    This salad would go well with a lovely fresh baked fish or grilled fish!
