Black Bean Quinoa Salad is an extremely easy salad to make, all while being packed with vital macro and micro nutrients. Compared to rice, quinoa has a higher protein to carbohydrate ratio as well as being gluten free. Mixed with spices, beans, and fresh vegetables, this salad combines the perfect amount of taste and nutrition. We recommend this as a side dish or a light meal earlier in the day.
