{NEW} Black Bean Quinoa Chopped Salad 🌱

This colorful salad is PERFECT for parties, tonights dinner, or even meal prep! I typically quadruple this recipe for our family of 8 (and always a few friends). Haha…yes, that’s a lot, but I do recommend doubling it because it goes fast!

Lasts pretty well in the fridge thanks to the fresh lime juice, but sometimes I’ll add the avocado right before serving too!

Did you know that quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contains all of the essential amino acids.

Quinoa also contains fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin E, and many antioxidants!

makes about 6 servings

Ingredients:
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 (15oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed, OR about 2 cups homemade cooked black beans
1 large green bell pepper, diced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 small red onion, diced
a good handful of fresh parsley or cilantro leaves, chopped
1 large avocado, chopped
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive or avocado oil
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)

Instructions:

In a large bowl add all the ingredients and very gently stir to combine.

You can serve this immediately or place in airtight containers and refrigerate.

It keep well for up to 3 days, and it’s actually tastier the next day, as the flavors blend together. My avocado does pretty well in this salad thanks to the fresh lime juice…but you COULD add avocado immediately before serving if you’re planning to make ahead.

Enjoy! ❤Rachel
