Quinoa Black Bean Salad

quinoa black bean salad

This was modeled after something Dizzle had from Whole Foods on a recent trip. I’m so glad to discover quinoa again. We had a bad experience a couple years ago and were hesitant to try it again. The “gross” one that turned us off was apparently a variety that required rinsing, and I totally ignored that instruction. Oops. Now most quinoa varieties are pre-rinsed and quicker to cook than rice. Sweet!

Cost: ~ $0.95 per serving  (as opposed to approximately $8.00 for the same size serving @ Whole Foods)
