This gluten-free salad is a complete meal packed into a single dish. Its star ingredients include fiber-filled quinoa, potassium-rich avocado and, of course, our beloved acorn squash. If you happen to be out of avocado, feel free to sub in approximately a quarter-cup of olive oil to create the same rich flavor.



1. Place the rinsed quinoa, water, onion, carrots, and squash chunks into a pot.
2. Heat until boiling and then turn down the heat to a simmer, as a pinch of sea salt, and put on the lid.
3. Cook for 20 minutes, or until all of the liquid has been absorbed.
4. While the quinoa and vegetables cook, place the garlic, avocado, vinegar, lemon juice, with salt and pepper to taste, into a blender and blend until smooth.
5. When the quinoa is finished cooking, mix in the parsley.
6. Mix in the dressing.
