Red Quinoa Black Bean Salad

The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that.

  • 2 cups red quinoa; soaked and rinsed  then cooked.  I use one cup of quinoa uncooked and 2 cups of water. (I use Trader Joe's Brand)
  • ½ of a small red onion 
  • 1 cup of plum tomatoes, halved
  • 2 green onions; sliced thin
  • ½ cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1 15oz can of black beans; drained and rinsed
  • 1 15oz can garbanzo beans; drained and rinsed
  • Fresh Pico de Gallo from the Grocery store, I buy the plastic tubs and keep one in the fridge at all times. I use one whole container for this recipe.
  • 1 can of tomatoes and chilis
  • ⅓ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Feta sprinkles on top if you like
Cook the Quinoa, toss in the black beans and the Chick peas.  Toss in the rest of the ingredients, including the spices.  Finish with the lime juice and red wine vinegar. Add more or less juice and vinegar to taste. 
I had to share this wonderful picture of my sweet friend Marsha.  She is one of my favorite sweet hearts and convinced me to do the 60 mile Susan G. Komen walk last October.
