Quinoa salad with avocado and roasted pineapple-pickled shallots

Here’s a salad with a tropical flair that’s so satisfying, it can easily become a one-stop meal! The delicate quinoa, tossed with a handful of fresh mint leaves and tangy pickled shallots, provides the most wonderful background for the deliciously sweet roasted pineapple and creamy avocado.

Every forkful of this salad is an explosion of flavors – earthy, crunchy, tangy, sweet… a festival for the taste buds!

Looks wonderful. I’ve been on a serious quinoa kick lately.

The pineapple sounds like a great way to spice a quinoa salad a bit! Love the contrast of flavors, and pickled shallots… I must try them too.
