"I found this recipe when I searched for avocados. I am try to eat a little healthier and this recipe sounded like it would be a good choice, especially made with quinoa and avocados. It was really good. Loved the crunch of the quinoa and the hint of lime was a nice touch. I will be making this again soon."
