August 15, 2017
1 cup Black beans - fresh or can
1 cup Corn - fresh, frozen or can
1/4 cup Red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup Fresh parsley, finely chopped
Rinse quinoa thoroughly. Bring 2 3/4 cups water and salt to a boil. Add quinoa, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes, or until quinoa is tender and transparent.
Fluff with a fork and allow quinoa to cool down. Place in a large mixing bowl. Stir in mixture: black beans, corn, cucumber, peppers, onion, and herbs. Add lemon vinaigrette dressing to taste-stir again. Place in refrigerator to chill before serving. Stir once more before serving. Enjoy!
