Quinoa Salad


I am a HUGE fan of quinoa. It is such an adaptable ingredient. This salad is super simple and works as a great leftover!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • ¼ cup fresh corn, cut off the cob
  • ¼ cup cooked black beans
  • ¼ cup red or green bell pepper, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • 1 lime squeezed
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. Cook the quinoa according to the package instructions. (*Cook with vegetable broth for extra flavor)
  2. Meanwhile combine the corn, (I use real corn on the cob but canned is fine) black beans, pepper and red onion in a bowl. Toss to combine
  3. Add the cooked quinoa into the mixture, and add the lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
