Easy Vegan Summer Quinoa Salad with Corn and Avocado

Quinoa Salad with Corn and Avocado

This is a simple go to quinoa salad that’s great as a side dish or on it’s own. The flavor combinations are really refreshing and it’s super easy to make. I almost always let it chill so all the elements combine and I like it cold.

I also recently discovered that Amazon sells organic quinoa in bulk, which is pretty awesome.

  2. CJ, what do you think about corn and GMO’s ? I’ve stayed away from it all summer and it’s tough when you’re a jersey girl.

    • Corn is one of the things that I only buy certified organic and try not to eat otherwise. It’s not 100% protection, but it’s definitely a step in the safe direction.
