Quinoa Salad

Friday night I was invited to a Pinterest Potluck. Meaning you bring a recipe you have pinned on one of your boards. I decided to bring a quinoa salad. I think they are delicious and I always see such good recipes for them. I ended up making my own recipe with things I liked and had in the house. Here is the recipe I came up with (and will be pinning, so technically I'm not breaking the rules:) More on the party tomorrow...xoxo. 

Quinoa Salad

1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 can whole kernel corn
2 can black beans
2 avocados peeled, pitted and cubed
1 red onion chopped
1-2 cups cherry tomatoes diced
1 cup fresh cilantro
Salt and Pepper to taste
Lime juice to taste

Cook quinoa according to box and let cool. Chop onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and avocado. Combine all ingredients.
