Southwest Style Quinoa Salad

Southwest Style Quinoa Salad
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn (frozen will do)
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallion
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (Meyer lemon is possible)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together, season with salt and pepper. It doesn't get any easier than that! There's so many options for this salad. Try jalapeno, cumin, mango, or tomatillo.

A fellow blogger sent me some quinoa at an exchange package and she also sent me the link to your salad. This looks great but I've also seen your other receipes with quinoa and look forward to trying one of them.
