“This is one of my FAVORITE Salads AND…Jenn Sherman has eaten it at my house!” – Kristy Carruba

1 cup quinoa (I used low sodium chicken or beef broth instead of water)

1/2 of a large red bell pepper

Juice from 2 limes

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

14 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed

4 green onions (aka scallions), diced

1/3 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

14 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup chopped cilantro (I love cilantro so I use more but if you aren’t a huge cilantro person this works)

1 teaspoon ground cumin (I have substituted using chipotle spice too…YUM)
