What You'll Need
  • Salad
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (I used read, but normal works great!)
  • 1 cup shelled edamame (I used frozen)
  • 1 can black beans (rinsed)
  • ½ jicama diced (I like to drizzle some lime juice and sprinkle some salt on the jicama about 5 minutes prior to combining with the other ingredients, this helps give it brightness and lots of flavor)
  • [br
  • Dressing
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • The juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  1. Cook 1 cup of quinoa according to package instructions ( I prefer to use chicken broth instead of water) then place in the fridge to chill for about 20 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, rinse the edamame and black beans and set aside.
  3. Peel and dice the jicama.
  4. In a small bowl combine the ingredients for the vinaigrette and whisk until emulsified.
  5. Once the quinoa is cool, combine with the above ingredients and toss well.
