Greek Quinoa & Avocado Salad

Greek Quinoa & Avocado Salad

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – everything’s better with FETA and this greek quinoa & avocado salad didn’t disappoint! I saw this recipe and decided I had to try it pretty much right away.  I topped mine with chicken (leftovers 😉 but it would be good plain too.

You’ll see that I used my Pampered Chef slicer for the avocado, spinach, grape tomatoes and the olives too!  This recipe serves four – I broke it down to make a single serving.

Fresh Goodness!

Steps:

  1. In a 1-1/2-quart saucepan cook the quinoa according to package directions.  You know it’s done when the liquid is absorbed. It takes about 15 minutes or so.
  2. Transfer quinoa to a medium bowl. Add tomato, spinach, olives and onion; stir to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, and salt. Add to quinoa mixture; toss to coat.
  4. Place spinach leaves on 4 salad plates. Arrange avocado slices on spinach leaves. Spoon quinoa mixture over avocado slices. Sprinkle with some of the feta.

Tips:

*Brush avocado slices with additional lemon juice to prevent browning*
