Lighter Quinoa and Black Bean SaladSubmitted by: SPINNINGAL
IntroductionVery much like the usual, but we left out the olive oil. Very much like the usual, but we left out the olive oil.
1 1/2 cups quinoa (I used Bob's Red Mill because it doesn't need to be rinsed)
1 1/2 cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 1/2 cups cooked corn
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1clove of garlic, minced fine
Juice of one lime
1 tsp. salt
While quinoa is cooking, in a small bowl, toss beans with vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
Add beans, corn, bell peppers, garlic, and cilantro to the quinoa. Toss well. Squeeze the lime over the salad, mix and salt to taste.
This can be made a day in advance and refrigerated, but it's also just fine warm.
Makes 8 1-cup servings.
