AH-mazing Quinoa-Chicken-Avocado Salad

Amazing Quinoa Salad

I have recently gotten a little bored of eating a romaine lettuce salad everyday for lunch. Not to say that I don’t love my giant salads! But I needed a change. So instead I came up with another salad! Apparently I suck at new ideas..But this salad is completely different and is 100% AH-mazing. So if you aren’t a salad eater, trust me on this one. You’ll like it. Filled with black beans, corn, avocado and more, this high protein lunch will keep you full for hours.

Ingredients:
-1/2 cup cooked quinoa
-1/3 cup defrosted, chilled corn
-4 heaping spoonfuls of black beans (sorry I didn’t measure this exactly, it may be a little less than 1/4 cup when I make it)
-1/2 a small avocado or 1/4 of a large one
-4-5 chopped canned baby corn (cleaned and rinsed)
-1/4 cup shredded chicken breast w/ a little salt & pepper (Canned works best for this!)
-soya sauce to taste
-lime juice

Directions: Stir all ingredients together in a medium sized bowl/container(makes a great school lunch!), and gently toss with lots of soya sauce and a small amount of lime juice to taste. Eat immediately or even better, make in advance and let it chill for 20 minutes or so! Enjoy! 🙂
