Jumbled Quinoa Salad

This tasty meal is a mix of all sorts of different ingredients. An Italian dressing is nicely accented with red onions, cheddar cheese and black olives. The quinoa sucks up the flavors for a strong experience :)

-2tbsp fat free Italian dressing
-1/3 cup cooked and cooled quinoa
-a large spoonful of:
  -black olives
  -cheddar cheese
  -chopped red onion
  -sliced water chestnuts
  -yellow corn
-2 pimento stuffed green olives sliced in half. (Adds a tangy flavor)
-1/4 of an avocado sliced

-throw everything together in a bowl and enjoy! 
If you leave it in the fridge for a little bit, the quinoa really absorbs the flavors. I make mine in the morning to bring to work for lunch. :)
