Southwestern Quinoa Salad highlights the best flavors of summer: a mix of black beans, corn and tomatoes atop a bed of quinoa, tossed in a homemade creamy avocado dressing.
This started out as a pasta salad recipe. And then I wanted to add beans.
Beans are always a lovely addition to foods because of their high fiber and vegetable protein content.
And then I cut out the pasta. Because it was hot and I didn’t want to cook it.
And before I knew it, I had bean salad! Such a perfect light summer dinner with no heating required.
One of the things I like most about summer meals are the endless salads one can serve. This one is fairly substantial, both in texture and flavor. The cannellini beans are hearty and the sun-dried tomato pesto packs a punch. You’ll have leftover sun-dried tomato pesto so plan to freeze it for later (it’s delicious on pasta or slathered on crostini).
