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!

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

You have got to try these Flourless Chocolate Cookies!!  Ever since I first tried the peanut butter cookies, I have been wanting to do a chocolate version.   So I finally got around to it and these flourless chocolate cookies came out great!  These healthy cookies have a very small ingredient list too.  Only 7 ingredients.  If you like these, then you will also like my flourless toasted coconut caramel cookies or my cinnamon pecan cookies.

These flourless chocolate cookies are so fudgy.  My older daughter Meadow could not stop putting her hands in batter.  I have to admit, I had a few tastes of the batter myself.  We whipped these cookies up in no time and you can too. 🙂

In my world, everything is better with avocado.  Don’t you agree?  I just love the creaminess avocado adds to salads.  Yum!  I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I did.   It would be a great dish to take to a backyard party.
