Black Bean & Quinoa Salad

Can you believe it's already the middle of July!  What summer fun have you been having so far?  We've been down the shore, gone to local carnivals, parties, BBQs...the usual warm weather activities.  Looking forward to lots more coming up.


In the meantime, I'll stay cool with another delicious summer salad.  A healthy one of the grain variety. A versatile one that allows you to pretty much dump in whatever you've got on hand.  Super easy to make, too!



Black Bean & Quinoa Salad
1 cup quinoa, cooked, drained and cooled
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup sliced bell peppers (I used the red, yellow and orange frozen mix from Trader Joe's...fresh obviously works, too)
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
juice of one lime
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.  Taste as you go and adjust seasonings accordingly.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve, or serve immediately.
