Quinoa, Mango and Black Bean Salad
This is another tasty one-pot dish! My apologies for the sideways, poor-quality photo. I swear the food is better than the picture!
I modified this Eating Well recipe for Quinoa, Mango and Black Bean Salad using just the main ingredients. I love fruit in my savory salads and mango is such a sweet summer fruit…even if I did use the frozen version (cheaper and already cut!).
2 cup tri-colored quinoa, prepped in the rice cooker with 4c water
1 bag frozen, pre-cut mango
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 can black beans, rinsed
a few dashes of ground ginger powder
3 Tbsp sesame oil
3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice
Salt to taste
Once the quinoa was cooked and cooled, I just tossed in all the rest of the ingredients and mixed to combine. I let the flavors meld all day, and enjoyed it cold for dinner. This is a great grain salad to bring to a summer BBQ!
