Great Summer Salad

"This made a lot of salad! I didn't have avocado but I added some diced tomato. Next time I might garnish with the basil instead of adding into recipe since the basil has turned black but otherwise this is great!"

Tasty and easy. I would use 1/2 the amount of quinoa and make double the amount of dressing.
