Red Quinoa and Avocado Salad recipe

I made this for the first time this past weekend. I did not have red quinoa on hand so I used red rice and loved it! I doubled the recipe but kept the onions and cumin at the original amounts because they are so strong.

"A tasty combination of quinoa, avocado, cumin, and lime juice with fresh veggies for a delicious meal!"

1/3 cup red quinoa
2/3 cup water
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup diced cucumber
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin seed
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 avocado - peeled, pitted and sliced
Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes. Spread into a mixing bowl, and refrigerate until cold.
Once the quinoa has chilled, gently stir in the tomatoes, cucumber, and onion. Season with lime juice, cumin, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Divide the spinach leaves onto salad plates, and top with the quinoa salad. Garnish with the avocado slices to serve.
