For The Love of Quinoa

A favorite for years I have tested many ways of making Quinoa and tonights was one of my new favorites.

1 Cup of Quinoa
2 Avocados, chopped
3 Vine Ripe Tomatos, chopped
3 Cloves of Garlic, crushed
Pickled Jalape├▒os
1/2 Can of Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 Can of Fresh Cured Green Olives, sliced
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil, I prefer Olio Di Gio from Dry Creek Valley
Feta Cheese, crumbled
Dash of Sea Salt

Cook Quinoa as directed. Combine 1 cup of Quinoa with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir and let cool.  Mix all of the above ingredients. Once the Quinoa is cooled to a luke warm toss it in the mix. Salt to taste. Then enjoy!
