Quinoa and Bean Salad

Loaded with fibre and protein, this quinoa and bean salad is sure to spice up your lunch.
I'm not big on green salads this time of year as the air chills, so to keep me warm I like a hearty quinoa and bean salad with loads of fresh veggies thrown in.

This is a yummy meal in a bowl.

Quinoa and Bean Salad
1 cup cooked quinoa (cook it in broth for more flavour and nutrients)
1 cup cooked black beans
I orange pepper, chopped
2 stocks of celery, chopped
2 tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 small zucchini, finely chopped
1 good sized purple onion, chopped. (Soak in water to take away the bite)
A drizzle of olive oil
2 tbsp lime juice
4-5 tbsp apple cider vinegar (use more if desired)
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
I also added a little Epicure Satay spice.

Mix together and enjoy. Will last in the fridge up to 5 days.
