Ingredients:
2 cups cold cooked quinoa (buy sprouted if possible)
2 cups fresh spinach leaves, chopped
1 cup cucumber, chopped
1 cup halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1 large avocado pitted, peeled & chopped
2 green onions, sliced
Optional: organic kalamata olives, sliced bell peppers – make it YOURS!
Salt & black pepper to taste

Dressing:

Cook your quinoa and cool. Chop all ingredients (except avocado) and add to the cooled quinoa. Make the dressing in a mason jar, put a lid on and shake well. When ready to serve, add the chopped avocado, dressing, mix well and serve!!! This salad is AWESOME leftover!!!
