Recently on More Good Day Oregon, I made a delicious Quinoa and Black Bean Salad with Corn and a Jalapeño Vinaigrette. So yummy!
This salad is so satisfying — so many fresh flavors from the green onions, jalapeño and cilantro. Plus, the combination of quinoa and black beans makes this salad full of protein and fiber.
This is a great prep-ahead meal you can keep in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week. You can enjoy the salad served alongside some dressed greens, or wrap it up in lettuce leaves. It’s also yummy tucked into a tortilla with some avocado wedges.
Lastly, it makes a great potluck dish. Which is where I first encountered this salad, which had been made with white rice. That version was delicious as is, but for this recipe I decided to use quinoa for extra fiber and protein.
