Recipe

As I write this post, I am currently shoveling this black bean, mango, and quinoa salad into my mouth and attempting to type with my one free hand. It’s not pretty, but I just can’t get enough of this salad. The nutty quinoa, earthy black beans, sweet mango, corn, cilantro, lime juice, and spices make the perfect combination for this hearty salad of what I am sure will turn out to be lots of quinoa salads now that the weather is warming up. Yum. What are your favorite quinoa or grain based salads?
