      This Quinoa salad is a crunchy refreshing salad and is made in under 20 mins, thanks to the Instant pot method. I am a light dinner person and this quinoa loaded with heart full of veggies and a simple lemon+ olive oil dressing makes the perfect meal for me and my family. We all love avocados and I try to blend in this superfood in my breakfasts and any salads that I make.
      To add some spiciness, I tossed the avocados with some sriracha sauce and believe me, it took the salad to another level. Do try this spice induced and veggie loaded bowl of happiness.
