2 cups cooked quinoa 1 cup cooked black beans rinsed ½ cup corn 1 mango peeled and diced ¼ cup green onions 3 tablespoons cilantro diced 1 lime zested and juiced ¼ teaspoon chili powder
In a large bowl, place the cooked quinoa, black beans, corn, green onions, and mango in a bowl.
Mix ingredients then add the cilantro, zested lime, and lime juice. Sprinkle the chili powder on top, mix well and let chill in the refrigerator for at least a half hour.
Fruit - If mango isn't in season you could chop up some canned (or fresh) pineapple. I know that sweet acidic flavor would also complement this salad well.
Corn - I like to use frozen corn that has been thawed, but you could use fresh or even drained canned corn.
Beans - You can use freshly cooked black beans or drained and rinsed canned black beans.
