  • 1 cup red or white quinoa
  • 2 cups corn about 4 ears, cut from the cob
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced and seeds removed
  • 1 recipe cilantro vinagrette
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/2 cup havarti cheese cubed
  • chili powder to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook the quinoa according to the package directions.
  • Once cooked, add the quinoa and raw corn to a large mixing bowl with the chopped jalapeño, green onions, cilantro avocado vinaigrette, all of the lime juice, chunks of havarti cheese and a dash of chili powder. Toss to combine.

For the Cilantro Vinaigrette

  • Make according to the link above but add 1 avocado into the mix before blending until smooth. If it's too thick, smooth out with a few tablespoons of water. The consistency should be that of mayo.
