Entered for safe-keeping. From June 2012 Nutrition Action Health Letter. Pick a firm but ripe avocado -- a Hass avocado should have black skin and yield just slightly to gentle pressure.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the quinoa according to the package directions, then allow to cool.
  2. Combine onion and vinegar in a large bowl and set aside until the onion turns pink, about 5 minutes.
  3. Cut the peel, pith, and outer membrane off the orange (any leftover white will add bitterness). Slice the orange, and cut the slices into bite-size pieces.
  4. Toss all the ingredients except the salt in the large bowl with the onion, then season with up to 1/2 teaspoon salt.
