  2. While the quinoa cooks, make the dressing. Combine avocado oil with fresh lime juice, minced garlic, parsley, cumin, salt and pepper.
  3. When the quinoa is ready, fluff with a fork and allow to cool.
  4. Once it is cool, combine with tomatoes, green onion, chickpeas. Toss salad with half of the dressing and serve.
