  • Summary

    This black bean quinoa salad is so fresh and tangy! It's delicious paired with creamy avocado and fresh pita bread or crackers. If you're not as big of a fan as I am of tangy/acidic dressings, feel free to reduce the amount of lime juice called for.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup uncooked quinoa (or 3 cups cooked)
    • 1 (14-ounce) can black beans (or 1 1/2 cups cooked), drained and rinsed
    • 1 1/2 cups fresh cilantro, finely chopped
    • 3 medium carrots, julienned (about 1 1/2 cups) or 1 large chopped and roasted sweet potato
    • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
    • Fine grain sea salt and black pepper, to taste
    • Lemon-Tahini Dressing (optional)
    • Sliced avocado (optional)
    • Endurance Crackers, pita bread, or crackers of choice (optional)
    • 5 to 5 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, to taste
    • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup, or to taste
    • 3/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, or to taste
