  • Mixing Bowl
  • Refrigerator


  • 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.
