A bright and fresh quinoa avocado salad packed with veggies and finished with a simple and flavorful lime dressing!


  • 1 cup (cooked) quinoa
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn (thawed)
  • 1/2 of a bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp red onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese

For the dressing

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt + pepper, to taste
  • Optional: Splash of hot sauce for a spicy dressing


  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the cooked quinoa with the black beans, corn, bell pepper, tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro until mixed well.
  3. Add the dressing and toss well.
  4. Gently fold in the cubed avocado*, then sprinkle with the feta. Taste and add more salt + pepper if needed; serve and enjoy! Can be prepped ahead for up to 3 days (see note).


*If you are meal prepping this or hoping to enjoy leftovers the next day, I recommend not adding the avocado until ready to serve!
