Greek Quinoa with Avocados

I love quinoa. It's a great side dish and it is so good for you! We had some ripe avocados so we found this recipe and loved it! Just last night Dan asked if I could make it again....sadly we didn't have avocado so it didn't happen. Here is what you need to make this yourself..tonight!
-1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, with 1 cup of water. Cook as directed on bag. Make sure you rinse the quinoa before cooking.
-2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup of chopped fresh spinach
-1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
-2 tbsps lemon juice
-2 tbsps olive oil
-1/2 tsp of salt
-2 rise avocados , chopped
-1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

Step one:
-Cook up the quinoa as directed on the bag.
-Put your tomatoes, spinach, red onions and avocados in a medium sized bowl.
Step two:
Once the quinoa is cooked add it to the bowl with the veggies.

Step three:
-Add the lemon juice, olive oil and salt.
-Stir it all up and add the feta cheese! yesssss
Enjoy this with a yummy meal. We ate salmon and asparagus!
