Sauteed Scallops and Quinoa with Orange-Avocado Salsa

Quinoa mixed with olive oil and a big handful of fresh herbs makes a refreshing bed for the scallops and zippy salsa made from oranges and avocado. The salsa is also good with shrimp or any fish as well as with chicken breasts or turkey cutlets. To time the dish right, start the quinoa cooking just before preparing the salsa. This recipe makes a generous amount of both the quinoa and the salsa; toss the leftovers with crumbled feta cheese and pumpkin seeds for a light but filling lunch the next day.

I thought this was a very easy meal to make....it was delicious and colorful! I added some shrimp because I didn't purchase enough scallops. I will make it again!

Everyone loved this when I made it. I now make the quinoa as a side all the time. The only thing I do differently is add fresh squeezed orange juice to the quinoa.
