Prepare your grain. Let cool. Stir together olive oil through cumin in a small bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl and pour dressing over salad, stir gently until mixed well. Season to taste with pepper.
I like to stir everything except the avocado in and put it in the fridge for an hour or so to let the flavors blend and add the avocado in just before serving. Sometimes I even put everything but the avocado together in the morning, and just before dinner add the avocado in. Yum! Don't worry though, the leftovers, if there are any will still be ok the next day. The lime juice does it's magic and the avocado seems to keep pretty well. Enjoy!
