Quinoa and Black Bean Salad

30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)

10 servings
A very festive dish! The flavors blend nicely together. It's a wonderful alternative to rice or couscous. The Quinoa seed is considered a supergrain and an almost perfect protein. You could easily reduce the amount of olive oil in this dish to bring down the fat content. The original recipe says it serves 4 to 6, however, its more of a crowd pleaser. I would say you could serve 10 with it easily.
