Greek Quinoa and Avocado Salad

Greek Quinoa and Avocado salad

I can live on salads during the summer months, and this is my favorite at the moment.

Ingredients: 1/2 cup quinoa, 4 tomatoes, spinach,  1 red onion, lemon juice, olive oil, 2 avocados, 200g feta cheese, sheep or goat.
Serves 4.

Directions:
1. Cook the quinoa as directed
2. Put it in a mixing bowl, add chopped tomatoes, onion, feta cheese, lemon juice and salt & pepper.
3.  Place spinach leaves on plates, arrange avocado slices on top and the quinoa-cheese-tomato mixture on top of that.
4.  Sprinkle som more olive oil all over.

I read in the papers today that scientists have found that only 2 tablespoons of olive oil a day almost halves your risk of dying from heart disease. Good news for olive oil lovers.
To get the most benefits from your oil, use cold pressed, virgin olive oil and pour it over your food after cooking.
You might destroy the goodness in the oil if you heat it.
As soon as you open your bottle the oxidization starts, especially extra virgin which contains chlorophyll, so store it away from sunlight in a dark place and don’t keep it for to long.
