Quinoa, Mango and Black Bean Salad
Health Highlights


1 cup Black beans, canned (rinsed and drained)
3 tbsp Canola oil
1/4 cucumber(s) Cucumber
1/4 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Curry powder
3 stalk(s) Green onion
2 tbsp Honey
1 mango Mango (ripe, peeled and diced)
1 cup Quinoa, uncooked (uncooked)
2 cup Spinach (baby, torn or sliced)
1 small pepper(s) Red bell pepper (or yellow, seeded and diced)
2 tbsp White wine


Rinse quinoa well under cool water in fine sieve or in several changes of water. Drain.

In large pot of boiling salted water set over medium heat, cook quinoa until tender but still firm to bite, about 15 minutes. It’s done when germ separates, making it look like a curly Q. Drain well and return quinoa to pot off heat. Cover with tea towel (replace lid), allowing it to steam and producing fluffy quinoa as it cools.

In large bowl, combine cooled quinoa, mango, pepper, spinach, black beans, cucumber and onions.

To make dressing, combine canola oil, white wine, honey, curry and cumin in jar or small bowl and shake or whisk to blend.

Drizzle salad with dressing and toss until well coated.
