  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 3 cups frozen golden sweet corn defrosted (can sub fresh)
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups cabbage shredded
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 cup green onion chopped
  • 8 ounces smoked salmon broken into pieces
  • 2 avocados ripe
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt divided
  • optional toppers: cilantro, limes, sriracha


  • Cook quinoa according to package direction. TIP: Use a rice cooker and cook using the 2:1 ratio method.  4 cups of water to 2 cups of quinoa + a pinch of sea salt!  When done add into a serving bowl.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat.  Add oil then corn along with 1/4 tsp sea salt.  Saute for 5-8 minutes, stirring frequently as the corn gets some color.  Remove and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Add shredded cabbage, black bean, tomatoes, green onion, smoked salmon and slightly cooled corn to a large bowl.  Stir to combine.
  • Make the avocado lime crema by combining avocado, sour cream, lime juice, 1/4 tsp sea salt and 1/4 cup water to a blender (I use my magic bullet for this).  Blend until smooth.  Taste and add more sea salt or lime as needed.
  • Serve with a base of quinoa, add the smoked salmon cabbage mixture, top with some avocado lime crema and your favorite toppers!
