Summer Salad 1 Picture


  • 2 cups cooked and cooled quinoa (I used Trader Joe's organic tricolor quinoa)
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 Persian cucumber (or 1/2 English hothouse), diced
  • 2-3 ears fresh raw corn, kernels cut off
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans
  • 3 large nectarines, pitted and diced
  • 1 small shallot, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lime



Step 1

In a large serving bowl, toss together all ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste if desired.

-To bulk up this salad, add a can of drained and rinsed kidney beans.
-This salad is delicious with avocado! Toss chunks in or serve with avocado strips on top.
-Spice it up with one finely chopped jalapeno pepper.
