Quinoa Avocado Spinach Power Salad

Quinoa Avocado Spinach Power Salad

Vegan, gluten-free
1 cup dry quinoa
2 medium avocados
3 oz. baby spinach, more as desired
8 oz. cherry tomatoes
3 green onions (or finely diced red onion)
1-2 cloves garlic (I use 2)
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/8 tsp. salt
Cook the quinoa according to package directions.*
Meanwhile, roughly chop the spinach. Place in a large bowl.
Mince garlic, and add to spinach.
Slice the green onions, halve the cherry tomatoes, and dice the avocado.
When quinoa is done cooking, add it to the large bowl with spinach and toss. (The heat from
the quinoa will lightly wilt the spinach and mellow the garlic.)
Add the green onions, tomatoes, red wine vinegar, and salt. Stir to combine.
Add the avocado and lightly toss.
Serve immediately or refrigerate to let flavors blend more.
*To cook quinoa, I use a ratio of about 1 cup quinoa to 1 1/2 cups water for fluffier quinoa.
