Sharing one of my favorite things with y’all today…QUINOA.
…and avocados. YUM
Together in one dish.
Avocado, Corn & Quinoa Salsa.
Great as a dip, with chips, or even over grilled chicken, fish, etc.
Here’s what you need to get started…..
I use organic whenever I can.
Start by making your quinoa ahead of time and cool it in the refrigerator.
Then chop the jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes, peppers and avocados.
Add everything to a large bowl except the avocado…..
Add cooled quinoa and stir. Then add avocados LAST.
Stir gently after you add the avocados.
You want them to stay intact, not get all mushy.
You can eat with corn chips or even as a side dish.
You can even spread over top of a grilled chicken breast or fish.
It’s good any way you eat it.
And it’s really a meal all in itself.
Plus it’s really healthy and fresh tasting!
The flavors mix perfectly.
I hope you’ll try it! It’s perfect to bring to a party or cookout this Summer.

Oh! And also, I made an edit to my Gluten Free Biscuits in case any of you printed that out already.
It’s a small one but still wanted to let you know. (I mistakenly put 30 minutes, instead of 30 seconds for “rise” time)
So go by and print it out again! :)
