Quinoa Salad with Avocado & Lime Dressing

This must be my most travelled food, it's the one I take if I'm off somewhere & know that getting nice clean food is going to be a problem. Its been to France, to India, America, Peru, Nepal and its even been to my local beach for a picnic. It travels well, though sometimes I swop the avocado dressing for some homemade garlicky humous......now thats a sure way of getting a sea to yourself on the train. Makes a fabulous take to work lunch too. Make a big batch up of it and store it in the fridge for a few days, just topping up your lunch box every morning.
