Quinoa Salad #1

           Quinoa Salad with black beans, avocado, and cumin-lime dressing

I'm assuming I'll be making many more quinoa salads in the near future and decided to label this post Quinoa #1. My early post on Quinoa Chili was a huge hit so I thought I'd show you another creative way quinoa can be used.

I really enjoyed this salad. It's very fresh, healthy, and filling. You get quite a bit of protein from the quinoa and the black beans. You can serve this as a side item, or fill a big bowl and chow down (what I did!)
