Ingredients

    1 cup quinoa
    2 medium avocados
    8 oz. cherry tomatoes
    3 oz. spinach
    3 medium scallions, chopped
    Dressing:
    2 cloves garlic
    2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
    2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    1 dash salt
    1 dash black pepper

Directions

Cook the quinoa according to package directions.
Meanwhile, make the dressing: in a small bowl whisk together ingredients and set aside.
Roughly chop the spinach and place in a large bowl.
Slice the green onions, halve the cherry tomatoes, and dice the avocado.
