INGREDIENTS
    • 1 cup (170g) quinoa
    • 2 cups (480ml) water
    • 2 medium avocados
    • 200g (7oz) cherry tomatoes
    • 2 medium cucumbers
    • 1/4 bunch mint leaves
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon salt
DIRECTIONS

1. Rinse the quinoa under cool water. Until the water comes out transparent. Put washed quinoa in a medium saucepan. Add water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes until the quinoa is fluffy. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Let cool.

2. Finely chop mint leaves. Cut in half cherry tomatoes, dice avocado into a medium dice, dice cucumbers.

3. Make the dressing: in a small bowl whisk olive oil, fresh lemon juice and salt.

4. In a large bowl combine quinoa and copped vegetables. Toss salad with dressing and serve.

5. Enjoy!
