Tanzanian Quinoa Salad

A Tanzanian Quinoa Salad recipe perfect for a quick and healthy lunch! It has avocado and grapefruit in it, it is so good!

– 1 C of quinoa, rinsed and drained – 2 grapefruits – 1/4 C of chopped cilantro – 2 Tbsp of chopped mint – 1 tsp of paprika – 1 tsp of coriander – 2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces – 7 oz of cherry tomatoes, quartered – 2 Tbsp of olive oil – Salt and pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the quinoa, and boil until cooked, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Peel the grapefruits and remove the pith with a sharp paring knife. Working over a bowl to catch any juice, cut the grapefruit into 1/2-inch pieces.

Transfer the quinoa to a large mixing bowl. Add everything else, toss together, and add salt and pepper to taste. Let sit at room temperature so the flavors can meld, anywhere from 5 minutes to half an hour.
