quinoa & black bean salad

Anyone ever cooked with quinoa? This was my first time, and I couldn't be happier with the results. This is an easy, vegetarian/vegan dish. I adapted the idea from this recipe, and I substituted red peppers for the green ones. You could add any vegetables you want to this salad, and it would be just as good. The lime dressing for this salad is amaaazing. This is a very healthy dish full of whole grain and protein, and it doesn't taste like your average, boring healthy meal. Don't you just love healthy, guilt-free dishes that are packed with flavor!? I know I do.
