Summer Quinoa Salad

I've experimented with quinoa and all of its superfood goodness a few times, and I finally reached a favorite recipe!  I mixed many of my favorite summer foods together and found a great dressing for this super easy salad.

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa 
    • (I cook it in vegetable broth rather than water, just to add some flavor.)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • chopped cilantro and parsley (to taste)
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh corn
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 tsp olive oil

*Let the quinoa fully cook before mixing in the other ingredients and adding the dressing.
*Add some chopped jalapeno for a punch!
