Quinoa and Pico Salad is a creative alternative to your traditional green salad, and it's packed with more protein. This healthy vegetarian recipe is light and nutritious, but also filling enough to satisfy your hunger. The delightful medley of fresh vegetables, including black beans, corn and red onions, give this dish a wholesome and refreshing flavor. And the addition of jalapenos give it a little kick (but don't worry, it's not too spicy). This is a quick and easy way to get your daily veggie intake into one dish, and it is absolutely delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups quinoa, cooked
  • 3/4 cup canned black beans
  • 3 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup Corn (thawed or grilled, removed from the cob)
  • 1 jalapeno, minced (remove seeds)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook quinoa according to directions on the box.

  2. Rinse black beans and mix with quinoa, tomatoes, corn, jalapeno, red onion and cilantro.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the lime juice, olive oil and salt together and add to the quinoa mixture.
