This Avocado Quinoa Salad by Natalie Martin MS, RD and Lexie Staten MS, RD is a quick & easy, nutrient-packed, oil-free salad. Simply toss together veggies, quinoa, avocado, spices, black beans, and enjoy as a meal or side. If you so desire, there are plenty of substitutions that can be made to make this salad your own. The broccoli, corn, tomatoes and onions can be swapped out for any of your favorite veggies. Cauliflower, carrots, cabbage.. whatever you’ve got in stock – get crazy! Any and all beans could be used in place of black beans – white beans, chickpeas, pinto beans. However, steer clear of beans that are mushy, as your final product won’t be quite as pretty (though still yummy).
