Quinoa Salad

I made this quinoa salad this past weekend for a friends birthday bbq and it was a hit!!! I doubled the below recipe. Enjoy!!

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

1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar or champagne vinegar
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup or honey
Salt & pepper to taste

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!!!
