I was craving a quinoa salad with black beans. Voila!
My husband will eat a quinoa salad, but is iffy with bean salads, so definitely not a quinoa bean salad. So this one is all for me, heheh.
To make, follow the basic idea as my other quinoa salad but add instead:
1/2 to 1 whole can of black beans, drained
1/2 diced orange bell pepper
1/2 diced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
A handful or two of steamed spinach, peas, or whatever veggie
1 chopped hot pepper (banana, jalapeno)
Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, and lime juice.
Garnish with goat cheese!
