Quinoa Corn and Avocado Salad

  • Serves 6
  • Preparation Time:


  • 1½ cups cooked quinoa
  • 1½ cups frozen corn, thawed

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ medium red onion, diced small
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Zest of 1 lime and 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Quick cooking quinoa makes this a perfect summer salad when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen. It is also great for a last minute potluck, or when company comes over unexpectedly.


Combine everything in a large bowl and mix well.
