Quinoa & Black Bean Salad, gluten free, corn free

This is a recipe that will blow you away! Even people who do not appreciate this sort of thing (like myself) will love it. I made all my beans from dried, but you can use canned if you are not concerned about corn derivatives. Just be sure to rinse and drain them! The original recipe called for 1 1/2 C cooked corn instead of chick peas, but I changed it to make the recipe corn and gluten free. You can always experiment with other types of beans. The friend who gave me this recipe put pinto beans in hers.

*****NOTE***** If you want to be sure that this recipe is also corn safe, you must:

1) use a high quality red wine vinegar -- check the label or call the manufacturer!
2) cook your own beans (or use a canned product that lists beans as its sole ingredient!)
3) use real lime juice that you squeeze from the fruit!
4) use non-iodized salt!
5) use high quality spices you can trust, like McCormick single ingredient spices (in this case, cumin)


FYI: 'Qinoa' is pronounced "keen-WAH"
