Fresh Quinoa Salad


Just finished batch-cooking for the week, and this is one of my creations for the menu. It’s fresh, super easy to make (especially if you cook your quinoa in a pressure cooker), and it tastes so flavorful!


  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of black beans, drained
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro
  • Salt, to taste (about 1 to 2 teaspoons)
  • Juice of a lime (optional)


Step 1

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and serve cold.
