I'm on a Quinoa kick right now and love to find new ways to eat it. That little powerhouse grain is so good for you. Here's a quick and yummy recipe that I love, and wanted to share.
In bowl combine:
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1/2 can black olives sliced
1 cup cilantro chopped
2 avocados diced
1 bell pepper, color of your choice, diced
1 small can green chiles
1 bunch green onions chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes sliced
1/2 purple onion chopped
Toss to combine.
I served mine with a drizzle of Cafe Rio Tomatillo Dressing. Here's how.
Cafe Rio Dressing
1 small buttermilk Ranch Dressing package-prepared as directed
2 tomatillos, peeled and washed, and cut into quarters
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1 clove garlic
Juice of 1 lime
1 jalapeno (optional) use the seeds if you want it spicy.
Blend well in a food processor or blender. Chill and serve.
You can toss the all 3 ingredients or just layer on the plate and serve.
So good and yummy!
