  • 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 100 gram feta cheese, crumbled

  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 11/8 Cups olive oil

Directions
  1. Rinse and drain quinoa three times to remove the natural coating that can make quinoa a bit bitter.

  3. Remove from heat and allow to stand covered for five minutes.

  4. Uncover, fluff with a fork and place in refrigerator, stirring every 10 or 15 minutes until cool.
