Quinoa is healthy and low fat of course!

Mango Salsa Quinoa Salad (pronounced Keen wah)

1 Cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed

2 Cup water

1/2 Cup cilantro, roughly chopped

2 medium avocados, diced

2 medium tomatoes, diced

1 ripe mango, diced

1/4 Cup lime juice (1 lime)

1 T olive oil

1/2 t ground cumin

salt and pepper to taste

Rinse the quinoa  and bring it to a boil in two cups of water.  Turn the heat down to low, cover, and let it simmer for fifteen minutes or so until all of the water is absorbed and the quinoa is light and fluffy.

In a large bowl combine rest of ingredients, then add quinoa and toss gently. Yummy!

** if you are not a cilantro fan, just use flat parsley and use lemon instead
