Quinoa salad is an original alternative to the salad recipes we usually prepare.
It is not only an original alternative, but a very healthy one with a high nutritional value. However, quinoa also has a higher caloric value than other seeds. So, you may ask, why cook quinoa? Well, because it has a high composition of proteins, many vitamins and minerals, and it does not contain gluten. I leave this link here so you can read more about the properties of the quinoa and in fact, also just in case you did not know what the quinoa is.

Salad with quinoa step by step
Now let's go with the avocado. It must be ripe so that the meat is soft, but firm enough to turn it into cubes. The avocado is chopped in half. The sharp part of the knife fits into the seed to remove it. In each half, perpendicular cuts are made, such as a grid or grid. Then, with the passage of a spoon flush with the skin of the avocado, the cubes will come out alone. In this link you can see more details on how to cut the avocado.
And now. Our quinoa salad is ready.
