Main Ingredients

for the salad:

1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained

1 1/2 cups water

1 juice of lime

4 tablespoons chopped cilantro, divided

2 cups grape tomatoes, halved

1 (15oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained

2 large avocados, sliced

for the salmon:

4 - 6 oz pieces of salmon

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

for the dressing:

1/2 cup hummus

1/4 cup lime juice

2 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp cumin

pinch of sugar

salt and pepper to taste


1Combine the quinoa and 1 1/2 cups water in a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Remove from heat.

2Stir the juice of one lime and 2 tablespoons of cilantro into the quinoa and set aside.

3For the Salmon:

4Heat the grill to medium high and brush the grates with the olive oil, or alternately, heat a cast iron skillet over high heat.

5Combine the spices in a small bowl and then rub each piece of salmon with the spice mix. Grill (or cook) the salmon for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until cooked through. Remove salmon from grill to a plate and cover loosely with tin foil. Let rest for at least 5 minutes.

6For the Hummus Vinaigrette:

7Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.

8Assemble the salad:

9Divide the quinoa, black beans, tomatoes, avocado, and salmon into 4 separate bowls. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro and drizzle the hummus dressing over the top. If desired, serve with an additional tablespoon of hummus on top of each salad. Enjoy!
