Robust Recipe: Black Bean Avocado Quinoa Salad 

wpid-IMAG1281.jpg

If you cannot tell already, I really like using black beans, avocados, peppers, and cherry tomatoes for salads of all kinds. I’ve also discovered using lemon and lime for seasoning recently! Which is a great way to flavor a salad without adding (barely) any calories or additional fat.  So here we have another fresh and nutrient dense salad, folks! Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients: 

1 cup uncooked quinoa (cook)

1-2 avocado(s), sliced

15oz black beans (low sodium)

15 oz corn (low sodium)

1 package cherry tomatoes, sliced

2-3 peppers (green, red or orange), chopped

1 lemon (squeezed)

1 lime (squeezed)

Directions: 

Cook quinoa following instructions on package. Cool after cooking.

Drain and rinse black beans and corn (if canned).
