Cook Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked black quinoa or regular quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large mango diced
  • 2 large tomatoes diced
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 medium avocados diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

Instructions

  1. First, using a strainer, rinse the black quinoa under cold water. Add quinoa, water, and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Let cool quinoa cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large bowl, combine quinoa, mango, tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, and avocados. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, olive oil, and cumin. Pour the dressing over the quinoa salad and gently stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
