Lime Avocado Chickpea Salad

Okay, so this dish is not really a salad, it is more of a side dish or a light lunch, but it is delicious!!!  Last week, I made Veggie Enchiladas (recipe seen before here) and this dish and invited some friends over for dinner.  Everyone loved it as it was healthy, flavorful and not overly heavy like rice can be.  I used a recipe adapted from thediva-dish (I used the same step process, just slightly altered the ingredients).

1/2 C. dry quinoa
1 C. vegetable broth
1 can garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)
1 C. Heirloom tomatoes cut in half
2 avocados diced
2 C. spinach
1 bunch cilantro
1/4 C. onion
2 small cloves garlic
For the dressing:
Juice of 2 limes
zest of 1 lime
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. cumin
dash of salt and pepper
