      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.



      Place the pot inside the instant pot and add washed quinoa. Add 1 cup water, salt and close the lid. Set the valve to sealing. Press the manual/ pressure cooker mode and set on high.Set the time for 1 min. When done, allow for NPR( natural pressure release). Open the lid and fluff the quinoa with fork. Transfer to a bowl to cool down.


      Now, to make the dressing, whisk together the honey, 2 tbsp lemon juice and 3 tbsp olive oil. When the honey blends in well, keep it aside.


      For the avocado mixture, combine together the avocado, 1 tbsp lemon juice, sriracha sauce, and add salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper powder. Mix well.


      Now to put the salad together, mix the cooled down quinoa, the chopped veggies, and add in the dressing. Season with salt and pepper.
      When serving, add a layer of the avocado mixture and top it with the quinoa salad. Enjoy your portion full of health and happiness.
