This colorful and nutritious salad offers plant-based protein, healthy fats and fiber. It is gluten-free, vegan and nut-free so everyone can enjoy. When possible, I like to prepare my quinoa and toasted pepita seeds in advance to make this recipe quick and easy to pull together. If you plan to serve this at a gathering you can prepare most of it in advance leaving the avocado and dressing for just before serving. Everyone loves this flavorful and filling quinoa salad.
- In a large bowl combine the cooked quinoa, mango, avocado, red onion, cilantro and toasted pepita seeds.
- Serve as is, with a simple spritz of fresh lime juice or with my Creamy Dairy-Free Cilantro Jalapeno Lime Sauce.
- If preparing in advance leave out the avocado and sauce until just before serving. Store undressed leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
