1. First, rinse the quinoa. Add water, quinoa, 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. Set aside to cool.
2. While the quinoa is cooling, make the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the rice wine vinegar, Tamari, sesame oil, lime juice, and fresh ginger.
3. In a large bowl, combine quinoa, edamame, avocado, green onions, and cilantro. Gently stir. Pour the dressing over the quinoa salad and stir to combine. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
Note-Make sure you use Tamari for a gluten-free salad.
