The Perfect BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad

I have the perfect summer salad for you. It is tasty, feels light weight, yet full of "power" foods!
The original recipe I got here, then I "Honeyville-ized" it to this:

Ingredients:
1 cup cooked Honeyville Quinoa
1/2 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Corn
1/2 cup prepared Honeyville Quick Cook Black Beans 
1 cup re-hydrated Honeyville Freeze Dried Chicken
1 avocado, chopped
Honeyville Freeze Dried Cheese
 2-4 Tbsp. BBQ sauce
Cilantro

Directions:
Prepare quinoa according to package instructions. Re-hydrate chicken, beans, and cheese according to package instructions. 
Once chicken is re-hydrated and drained, stir in BBQ Sauce.
In a large bowl, mix together the quinoa, corn, black beans, chicken and avocado. Season with salt and pepper
Top with cilantro, cheese, and more BBQ Sauce if desired

I added a little more BBQ Sauce to my salad, I didn't re-hydrate the corn because I LOVE THE CORN just the way it is!  I really enjoyed this salad, you will have to give it a try this summer!!
