My new-found food obsession. A wonderful quinoa salad from ohladycakes.com. Note: Rinse the quinoa well by placing it in a sieve and swishing around with your fingers under running water.

Directions

  1. In a dry saucepan over medium heat, cook quinoa for about 5-10 minutes until it smells toasty, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  2. Add the water to the saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Once it boils, cover and bring heat down to low and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all the water has been absorbed. Watch closely towards the end to avoid burning. Set aside to cool.
  3. While quinoa is cooking, whisk together lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, honey, Jalapeño, cumin, paprika, and salt in a small bowl.
  4. When the quinoa is cooled to your desired temperature, mix it together with cherry tomatoes, onion, corn, cilantro and avocado. Drizzle dressing to serve.
