Mexican Quinoa Salad Recipe

Ingredients

1 Cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/2 cups black beans (or a 15. oz. can)
1 1/2 cups corn  (I used frozen, thawed)
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered (I used diced Romas)
1 red bell pepper, diced
5 green onions, diced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (or more to taste)

Dressing

1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp. cumin
1 garlic clove, minced
Juice from 1 lime
1/4 tsp salt

Directions

Rinse and drain quinoa.  Add to pot with 2 cups water and bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heart to low and simmer for 20 minutes or until water has absorbed and quinoa is tender.  In a small bowl, add dressing ingredients and whisk together  to thoroughly combine.  In a large bowl, add the cooked quinoa with all other salad ingredients.  Pour dressing over the top and toss to combine.  Can either serve immediately or chill before serving.
