1.  To cook the quinoa in a pressure cooker, place it and the water, garlic, and salt in the cooker and lock the lid. Over high heat, bring to high pressure and cook for one minute. Remove from heat and allow the pressure to come down naturally. Fluff the quinoa and allow it to cool.

2.  Dressing: 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (NOT lemon) 3 tablespoons vegetable broth or bean cooking liquid 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste (optional) 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili pepper

3.  Combine all of the vegetables in a large bowl. Add the quinoa and mix well. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad. Mix well and refrigerate until chilled. Taste before serving, and add more lime juice as necessary (you want it to be tangy). Garnish with avocado slices and serve. Makes about 10 servings.

Organic quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a light, fluffy, edible seed that feels and tastes more like a grain. Thanks to its mild, somewhat nutty and irresistible flavor, organic quinoa is an immensely popular food. But this "mother grain" is also valued for its tremendous nutritional content.
