I've had recipes turn out great, tons of times. Especially this year. But this, thus far, is perfection. I'm officially in love with Quinoa Salad with Black Beans and Mango. Quinoa has been my favorite little grain for years, but this salad even beats my own specialty. The red bell pepper and green onions complemented the red wine vinegar perfectly. No added spices were needed, the cilantro was enough. It was sweet, spicy, crunchy, soft... every combination all in one bite.
Quinoa and black beans make an awesome salad, no matter how you alter it. My (old) favorite salad included them with red onions, cucumbers, lemon juice, and coriander. And the best part about quinoa is you can use the leftover all week on top of greens for a healthy (and quick) salad.
