Quinoa seems a little bitter to me, so I found a recipe on the back of the back of quinoa and put my own spin on it.
Avocado Cranberry Quinoa Salad
1 large avocado chopped
1 1/2 cups of cooked quinoa
1/2 cup of crumbled feta
1/3 of toasted slivered or chopped almonds
2 TBS of minced onion
1/4 dried cranberries or 1/2 cup fresh grapes (halved)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsps red wine vinegar
1 tsp of raw sugar
1 tsp honey
1 tsp prepared mustard
salt and pepper to taste
Mix salad ingredients, Mix dressing ingredients, then add dressing and mix. Refrigerate yields 6 servings.
You could add crumbled bacon for a little twist as well!
