    1/3 cup quinoa, prewashed or rinsed very well
    2/3 cup low sodium chicken broth
    1/2 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/4 inch thick half moons
    1/2 medium yellow squash, sliced into 1/4 inch thick half moons
    1/4 cup pine nuts
    1/4 cup mexican cheese (queso) (omit the cheese or choose low fat for a cleaner side dish)
    1/3 cup avocado dressing (recipe follows)
    2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
    olive oil

Combine quinoa and chicken broth in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 10-15 minutes, until quinoa is translucent. Meanwhile, spray zucchini and squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill 5 minutes on each side, until tender.

Combine cooked quinoa and squashes, nuts, cheese, cilantro, and 1/3 cup avocado dressing in a large bowl. Toss to combine, then serve.
