Quinoa Black Bean Salad

Quinoa Black Bean Salad

 

Quinoa salad

1 C uncooked quinoa (see below)
1 Can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 C roma tomato diced
1 large cucumber sliced (I used the mini cucumbers at Costco)
1 red bell pepper diced
1/4 purple onion diced
2 + limes (for juice) to taste
1 C frozen corn
1 avocado diced (optional)
1/2 bunch cilantro — rinsed and finely chopped

I added these few things for dressing
red wine vinegar/apple cider vinegar (to taste)
olive oil (2 tlb)
pinch of pepper
pinch of course salt

Cook quinoa according to directions. While quinoa is cooking dice your vegetables. Once quinoa is cooked add frozen corn 1st to start the immediate cooling process for the quinoa, then add all the remaining veggies and dressing (lime, vinager, oil s&p) 🙂 and place in fridge until chilled. Serve alone or with healthy tortilla chips.
