{Quinoa Salad with Black Beans and Veggies}

My mom whipped up this delicious quinoa salad on Saturday to go along with our Grilled Salmon Tacos

Let me tell you, this quinoa salad was fresh, packed with good for you ingredients and down right tasty!  I have been eating the leftover quinoa salad topped with leftover citrus mango salsa, and avocado for lunch... Yum!!  What I think is great about this salad is there is no sugary dressing, the simple ingredients really do all the talking in this dish!  Sub in different veggies if you like and make this your own!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did, makes a great addition to taco night!
