Quinoa Salad with Avocado Cilantro Dressing

 

It’s quite cool and dreary today so I wanted something that had lots of color. I love that quinoa is a complete protein and goes with so many things. This salad has so much flavor and is filling enough for a meal. The crunch of the raw veggies with the quinoa satisfy your palate.

You simply just cut up all your raw veggies and toss them with the lettuce and quinoa.

To make the sauce, you simply combine the ingredients and blend.
