Quinoa is a staple of Peruvian cuisine. This ancient grain is packed with protein and is gluten-free. It is actually closely related to species like beets or spinach!

Ingredients:

2 cups Tri-color Quinoa, cooked
¼ cup Red Onion, small dice
½ cup Cucumber, small dice
½ cup Tomatoes, small dice
2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
½ tsp Salt
4 Avocados, halved and pitted

Directions:

Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Fluff with a fork and transfer to a large bowl. Mix in the red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, cilantro, olive oil, vinegar and salt. Cut each avocado in half and gently scoop out of the shell, keeping it intact. Scoop the quinoa salad into the center of each avocado. Serve immediately.
