(Actually Delicious) Quinoa Mango Black Bean Salad
While in Utah for Christmas, my husband’s cousin brought a bright and fresh quinoa salad to the family Christmas party. That spot of freshness in the midst of the heavy Christmas food was SO refreshing to me. It was like a bright spot in the middle of winter. I asked for the recipe and immediately started thinking of ways to make it better. I completely re-did the dressing, added some extra veggies and BAM! This is what I came up with. And DANG. It’s good.
I love a good recipe that has perfect amounts of fiber (beans, quinoa and veggies), protein (beans and quinoa), and fat (avocado and oil). One of the best things we have done with this recipe so far is making a big batch at the beginning of the week for lunch meal prep. It’s perfect for a healthy, but filling and well-balanced meal in the middle of the day.
