Recipe Ingredients for Black Bean and Quinoa Salad

1 1/2 cups quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
15 oz black beans, rinsed
1 1/2 tbs red wine vinegar
1 1/2 cups corn
1 cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 jalepeno peppers, minced
1 tbs dried coriander
5 tbs fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 tbs ground cumin
1/4 cup olive oil

Recipe Directions for Black Bean and Quinoa Salad

Cook Quinoa in the water. Bring to boil, then simmer, covered til water is absorbed, about ten minutes. Cool in large serving bowl. Drain and rinse beans, then toss together with corn in small bowl. (this is best with fresh cooked corn off the cob but frozen cooked corn works ok, too.) Add green peppers and jalepeno (I use jarred), and toss it all together with the vinegar and coriander, salt and pepper. Combine bean mixture with Quinoa in the large bowl. Make dressing by combining lime juice, cumin, salt, and olive oil with a wisk-pour over salad and mix well.
