My first try at Quinoa and I loved it.
Quinoa, Mango & Black Bean Salad
From EatingWell: EatingWell Serves Two
The vibrant colors of this salad—orange, red, black and green—signal that it's loaded with phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals. And since it features both quinoa—a “complete” protein with all the essential amino acids—and black beans, it's a vegetarian protein powerhouse. Serve on a bed of Boston lettuce or in a pita pocket.

Loved this recipe!.....Caramba!
I made it as the recipe stated, but then I added a tablespoon of Organic Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar and spicy chili powder to give it extra kick! Served with sliced avocado, blue corn chips and salsa and a nice cold Mexican beer with lime! My husband loved this special surprise for a late Friday afternoon lunch! I believe toasting the Quinoa is an excellent idea and now I have become a fan of this fantastic grain. I will always keep Quinoa as a staple in my pantry after this recipe! Thank you!
I love this recipe! I add a diced avocado and make two small substitutions: olive oil for the sesame oil and apple cider vinegar for the rice vinegar. It's a great dish to bring to a potluck!
I thought this was excellent. I will certainly make this again and again.
