Quinoa salad with mango

A wonderfully tasty quinoa salad by Tasty Yummies!! Highly recommended with your choice of meats, to accompany a BBQ or simply enjoy on its own! I will definitely make again! Serves 4-6 people (I doubled the recipe and it fed 10 people with some leftovers)

    Salad
    2 cups cooked quinoa
    1 mango, diced
    1 cup of canned organic black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 cucumber, quartered the long way, then sliced
    1 cup organic cherry tomatoes, halved
    3-4 spring onions, sliced thinly
    1/4 cup fresh coriander, roughly chopped
    1 avocado, diced

Cook the quinoa according to package directions. After it is cooked, fluff the quinoa with a fork and set aside to cool. Once the quinoa is cooled, toss it with the rest of the ingredients.

    Dressing
    juice from 1 lime
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 clove garlic, minced
    zest from 1/2 lime
    salt and pepper, to taste

Mix the dressing in a small bowl, whisk well to combine. Drizzle the dressing over top of the salad, and toss gently to evenly coat. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the salad at room temperature or chilled topped with jalapeños on the side.
