Directions

  1. Rinse quinoa in a fine sieve under cold running water. Put quinoa in a pot with 2 1/4 cups water. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer 20 minutes or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Fluff quinoa with a fork and transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool.
  2. While quinoa is cooking, in a small bowl toss beans with vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add beans, corn, bell pepper, scallions, garlic, cayenne and coriander to the quinoa. Toss well.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin and add oil in a stream while whisking. Drizzle over salad and toss well with salt and pepper. Salad may be made a day ahead and refrigerated, covered. Bring to room temperature before serving.
  5. note: the olive oil can be halved easily.
