Mango and Black Bean Quinoa Salad

Summer is not totally over yet, so I am making you a Mango and Black Bean Quinoa Salad. I just love salads.

Last month when I went home to Boston, my stepmom made this awesome pasta salad with mangoes, black beans, corn, pasta, cilantro and lime.  I really enjoyed it, so I decided to come home and make a twist on that recipe. I used quinoa in place of the pasta, since I am not a huge pasta fan.  I think this came out really good!

  1. Just made this and even before marinating in fridge for 30 minutes, it's so tasty!!! What a nice light dinner- I did add a splash of olive oil, just to give it a little more depth.. Thank you!
