For the salad
For the lime dressing
- Make the dressing. Place all the ingredients in a screw-top jar with tight-fitting lid and shake well. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and sweeten with honey to taste.
- Place the rinsed quinoa in a heavy-based saucepan with 2 cups cold water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed, 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to stand for 5 minutes. Uncover quinoa and allow to cool.
- Halve, stone, peel and cut avocado into chunks and place in a bowl with the cherry tomatoes, onion and coriander. Drizzle over the dressing. Scatter in the cooked quinoa and use a fork to gently mix.
- Serve salad with barbecued lamb chops. A lime pickle is good here too.
