BUY IT

  • 2 cup water
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 avocado (very ripe, peeled and pitted)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 T fresh chives (chopped)
  • 1 T dried parsley
  • 1/2 T salt
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 t dill
  • 1/2 t black pepper
  • 1/2 t thyme
  • 1/2 t ground mustard seed
  • 1/4 t paprika
  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 small zucchini (chopped)
  • 1 cup red grapes (halved)
  • 3 radishes (cut into half slices)
  • 1 cup corn kernels

MAKE IT

  1. First, fill a pot with 2 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add 1 t of the salt. Add the quinoa, bring heat to low and cover. Let cook for 12-15 minutes. Open lid and fluff with a fork. All liquid should be absorbed.

  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mash the avocado. Then, using a blender, Vitamix, or whatever you got, combine mashed avocado, sour cream, greek yogurt and all the spices. Blend until ingredients are evenly distributed and mixture thickens a bit, stopping to scrape the sides of the blender with a spatula.

  3. Combine veggies (bell peppers, zucchini, grapes, radishes, corn) and quinoa in a big bowl. Mix.
