Quinoa Salad with Avocado

1/2 cup sprouted red quinoa
1 avocado diced
1/2 cup diced red onion
2 diced green onions
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 med diced Roma tomato
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Salt & Pepper

Add all ingredients to small bowl. Add oil and vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.  Mix well serve.

To sprout quinoa, add 1 cup quinoa to container with cover.  Rinse quinoa well about three times.  After rinsing fill container with fresh water and cover.  Let container sit on countertop overnight.  In morning rinse quinoa and drain very well.  Dry out container and put drained quinoa back in and cover.  It will last in refrigerator about four days. ( This method of spouting works well with other grains as well as lentils.)
