This was my first ever taste of quinoa and I've been hooked ever since.

  • 1/4 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 2 1/2 oz. chicken, cooked, free-range, organic
  • 3/4 oz. cashews, raw, organic
  • 2 tbs. cilantro, bunch, fresh, organic
  • 1 onion, red, organic
  • 10 grapes, red, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. vinegar, red raspberry, organic
  • 1 oz. avocado, fresh, organic

Toss first 6 ingredients with dressing. Place on a bed of lettuce. Top with avocado cubes. I like it both warm or cold. Can easily change ingredients to fit your allowances.

This tastes much better the second day, so I make several individual servings at once withholding the cashews avocado and grapes to add right before serving.

You can leave off the chicken for a great side salad also.

Here is the raspberry vinaigrette I used for the eating clean website. 1/2 cup avocado oil 1 cup raspberries 1/4 cup honey 1tsp Dijon 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar Pinch sea salt. Store up to two weeks in fridge.
