Author's Notes

This quinoa black bean salad will stay good in the fridge for 3-4 days if stored in an airtight container. Feel free to freshen it up with additional herbs or more fresh lime juice before enjoying it again. I do not recommend freezing this recipe.

Prepare your own quinoa at home rather than buying pre-made. It is healthier and only takes 15 minutes.

Use fresh veggies and fresh herbs over canned, frozen, or dried. This makes for a tastier salad.
