Quinoa Avocado Salad
This delicious quinoa avocado salad is a wonderful quick and easy recipe that can be served as a main or a side. Loaded with fresh ingredients and finished with a Greek yogurt dressing.
Servings 6 servings
- 3 cups quinoa cooked
- 3 avocados chopped
- ½ cup red onion chopped
- ⅓ cup red bell pepper chopped
- ½ cup cilantro chopped
- Salt to taste
Combine quinoa, avocados, red onion, red bell pepper, and cilantro in a large bowl, set aside.
In a smaller bowl, whisk Greek yogurt, chili powder, garlic powder, honey, salt, and lime juice. Pour dressing over the quinoa and toss to combine, careful not to smash all the avocados. Salt to taste.
Quinoa can be served warm or refrigerate in for up to 1 hour.
- Cook 1 cup of quinoa according to directions on the package. 1 cup of uncooked quinoa yields 3 cups cooked quinoa.
- If refrigerating this salad, you may need more salt than if served warm.
- Eat immediately or within 1 day. The avocado will start to turn brown after a day. Still edible but not as pretty.
