Mango Quinoa Salad

Check out the link above to see me on Studio 5 whipping up this beautiful Quinoa Salad!

  I'm not sure if it's the fresh lime, cilantro, or the sweetness of the mango in this salad that gives it an explosion of flavor...but eating healthy never tasted so GOOD! I love Quinoa!

 3 cups cooked quinoa
 1- 14 ounce can black beans rinsed & drained
 1 medium mango peeled & diced
 6 green onions thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
 1 red bell pepper diced
 1 yellow bell pepper diced
zest of one lime
 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
 4 tbsp olive oil
 1-2 tbsp fresh lime juice 
 1/2 tsp garlic powder
 1 tsp sugar
 kosher salt & fresh cracked black pepper to taste 
  
 Cook & cool quinoa to room temperature. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a big bowl & toss. In a mason jar or salad shaker combine remaining ingredients for dressing & shake. Pour over salad & toss.
