Quinoa Summer Salad With Shrimp.

This recipe is based off of a quinoa salad by my favorite fitness blogger, Sarah Dussault. I did modify it a bit and it came out great! 

Serves 4
What you'll need:
•1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa
•1/4 red onion, chopped
•1/4 cilantro
•1 bell pepper, chopped (any color)
•2 tbsp olive oil
•1 tsp dijon mustard
•1 tbsp lemon
•3 oz of shrimp per person

Cook quinoa according to package and set aside.
In a bowl mix the olive oil, lemon juice, and dijon mustard. 
Add in your chopped pepper, onion, and cilantro.
Once your quinoa has cooled add it to the other bowl and mix.
Top each serving with 3 oz cooked shrimp, 1/4 avocado (optional), and salt and pepper to taste! 

Don't forget you can switch it up and substitute the shrimp for chicken!
