Spicy quinoa black bean salad

Spicy quinoa black bean salad

What makes this super food so healthy is the fact that it’s packed with vegetables and herbs, for plenty of vitamins and minerals such as iron and calcium. Paired with quinoa and black beans, which are both good sources of fiber and protein, and a little extra-virgin olive oil, which helps with fat-soluble vitamin absorption, this salad makes a filling and satisfying lunch or dinner.

This salad can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge.

  • 1 cup cooked black beans

  • 1 cup diced grape tomatoes

  • 1 cup diced avocados

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp cider vinegar

  • 1 Tbsp lime juice

  • Salt

  • 2 Tbsp Cilantro chopped coarsely

  2. In a small bowl whisk garlic in olive oil, vinegar and lime juice .
