Total Time: 30 Minutes, Servings: 5 Servings



Ingredients :
  • For the salad
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup quinoa well rinsed and drained
  • 1 3/4 cups low sodium vegetable broth or water
  • 1 cup canned corn drained
  • 15 ounce can black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 4 green onions sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • For the lime vinaigrette:
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • For serving
  • guacamole or avocado if desired



Instructions :
  • Heat the 2 teaspoons olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, stirring, about 1 minute. Add the quinoa and vegetable broth (or water) and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed, about 12-16 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • While the quinoa cooks, prepare the lime vinaigrette. In a small bowl or jar, combine the dressing ingredients. Whisk (or shake in a jar with a lid) until well combined.
  • Transfer the cooked quinoa to a large bowl and stir in the corn, black beans, bell pepper, green onions and cilantro. Add the dressing and stir gently to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  • Serve salad warm or cold, with guacamole or sliced avocado if desired.
