This recipe is a great way we use fresh California avocados at George’s At The Cove, especially since they’re in season right now. Grilling avocados is something people don’t usually think of, but it’s a great addition to your avocado cooking repertoire.

This salad is perfect to offer on a buffet as an appetizer or vegetarian option, or as a simple healthy meal at home. The acid from the citrus, tomatoes and vinaigrette combined with nutty quinoa and the creamy grilled avocado is a perfect balance for a warm summer meal.
