Black Quinoa Salad with Black Beans and Mango


  • 1 mango, peeled and diced small
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed or olive oil (I used EVOO)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cooked black quinoa (or a blend) cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed ( a 15-ounce can)


Combine the mango, red pepper, scallions, and cilantro in a mixing bowl. Add the red wine vinegar, oil, and salt and stir to combine. Add the quinoa and stir until everything is well incorporated. Fold in the black beans. Serve immediately or let it sit for a bit to let the flavors meld.
