Spicy Lime Quinoa Salad

There is nothing I love more than a big bowl of fresh vegetables. Especially when it’s an easy throw together kind of dish that can last you a few days. This is one of my favourite go to recipes, as it keeps for several days and can be used in a variety of ways.  I particularly enjoy this spicy lime quinoa salad on its own, stuffed in an avocado, tossed on a bed of greens, or as a side to grilled fish. You can really enjoy it however you please, as it is so versatile. Here’s the dish-

Spicy Lime Quinoa Salad

  • 1 19 oz. can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 a red onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 3 stalks of celery, diced
  • 3 carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup corn (I prefer straight off the cob, but frozen or canned will do)
  • 1.5 cups cooked quinoa
  • handful of chopped cilantro
