Black Bean And Quinoa Salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

I have a delicious salad recipe for you guys today.


It’s a Black Bean & Quinoa Salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette. It tastes so good! I do warn you. Be careful when cutting the onions or the cilantro. I do not know which one but one of them made my eyes burn. I think it may have been the onions but the cilantro had a strong smell too. Either way, it was delicious and I will definitely make it again.


  • 1 cup dried black beans, cooked
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa (about 1 cup dry)
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cumin


  1. If you haven’t already, cook the quinoa and the black beans. Mix it together. Add in the pepper and onions.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the cilantro, olive oil, vinegar, lime juice and cumin.
  3. Mix it into the quinoa mixture.
  4. Let it marinate for 30 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!

I have been busy with school lately. I am loving all of my classes so far. It is a lot of reading. However, it is very interesting reading. I am taking GE classes this semester since all of the nutrition classes I tried adding were full. It happens and that’s okay. GE is also important to take. One of my classes I am taking right now is for my Spanish Minor. The other classes I am taking are very cultural.

I guess that’s it for now. I hope you guys enjoy the salad!
