Fresh Quinoa Salad

I love this salad so much. It is delicious, nutritious and refreshing. I have made several variations of this over the years but today I am going to share my favorite variation. Even my husband (who is not a fan of quinoa) will eat this one. I am still working on the kids eating all of it- they will currently pick out the corn and the beans.... which is good I guess for 17 month olds!

Now that I have been trying to cook more from scratch this is going to be added to my monthly menus!!


Quinoa Salad

3 Cups cooked quinoa
1 diced red onion
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can sweet corn (drained)
1/4 cup diced fresh cilantro
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 drop lemon essential oil or 1 tsp lemon juice (If using oil make sure it is of food grade quality)
1 drop lime essential oil or 1 tsp lime juice (If using oil make sure it is of food grade quality)

Mix all ingredients together and let set for at least 4 hours (overnight is better) to get the flavors mixed in.

I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do. It is perfect for taking to potlucks as well as for a side dish with a summery dinner!

Thanks for reading,
Zoe
