Mango Black Bean Quinoa Salad

This salad is easy, bright and so delicious! It's also full of protein and can stand on it's own for a light meal!

1-2 cups cooked quinoa - cooked in vegetable, chicken or beef broth - chilled
1 can black beans - drained and rinsed
1 medium mango - peeled and diced
1 red bell pepper - diced
4-6 green onions - white and green parts thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro - chopped
4 TBSP red wine vinegar
3 TBSP olive oil
1-2 TBSP fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

In a large bowl combine the cooked, cooled quinoa, mango, red pepper, green onion, black beans and cilantro.

In a separate bowl whisk together the vinegar, oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Pour over salad and toss to combine. Salt and pepper to taste.

Chill and serve.
