Ingredients

    3 c. cooked quinoa
    1/2 avocado diced
    2 plum tomatoes diced
    3 tbsp cilantro chopped
    4 tbsp red or yellow onion diced
    1/2 c. red peppers diced
    1 can of black beans rinsed
    1 can of chickpeas rinsed
    Dressing:
    2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
    2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    pinch of salt and pepper

Directions

Whisk together lemon juice and olive oil, add a pinch of salt and pepper then add the avocados and let them marinate in dressing for a few minutes. They will break down a little allowing the flavor of the avocado to incorporate into the dressing. Then add the rest of the ingredients into the dressing and mix together well. Serve chilled. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
