Quinoa Dinner Salad

Time for a vegetarian meal! I actually ate a lot today. Don't know why but I was feeling hungry so I had a big bowl of oats for breakfast, two spelt crackers with chicken at 11 A.M., 3 slices of spelt-quinoa bread of which two with avocado, tomato & egg and one with cottage cheese, cucumber and salmon and in the afternoon 2 tangerines and a rice cracker with peanut butter. So decided to make a simple and light quinoa dish for dinner tonight. It's very basic but due to the lime juice all the flavors are enhanced.
