Southwestern Black Bean, Quinoa and Mango Medley Recipe

Southwestern Black Bean, Quinoa and Mango Medley

This healthy salad is a great way to jump start your Spring! Quinoa, black beans, mango and vegetables with cilantro and lime juice – a delicious combination perfect for lunch or as a side dish. (perfect for Meatless Mondays!) Leftovers are great, the flavors only get better the next day.

This recipe is from the archives, since the weather is getting warmer I find myself craving more salads and lighter dishes like this. It’s packed with vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber, folate, iron and lutein so it’s not just tasty, it’s good for you.
