Ingredients

1 ½ cups 藜麦
1 ½ cups 黑豆
cooked, rinsed if canned
1 ½ tablespoons 红酒醋
1 ½ cups 玉米
cooked
¾ cup 青椒
chopped
2 墨西哥辣椒
pickled, seeded and minced
*
¼ cup 胡荽叶
freshly chopped
Dressing:
5 tablespoons 青柠汁
fresh
1 ½ teaspoons 小茴香
ground, or more or less to taste
½ teaspoon
or to taste
¼ cup 橄榄油,特级初榨
or up to 1/3 cup

Directions

In a bowl wash quinoa in at least 5 changes cold water, rubbing grains and letting them settle before pouring off most of water, until water runs clear and drain in a large fine sieve.

In a saucepan of salted boiling water cook quinoa 10 minutes.

Drain quinoa in sieve and rinse under cold water.

Set sieve over a saucepan of boiling water (quinoa should not touch water) and steam quinoa, covered with a kitchen towel and lid, until fluffy and dry, about 10 minutes (check water level in kettle occasionally, adding water if necessary).

While quinoa is cooking, in a small bowl toss beans with vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer quinoa to a large bowl and cool. Add beans, corn, bell pepper, jalapeños, and coriander and toss well.

Make dressing:

In a small bowl whisk together lime juice, salt, and cumin and add oil in a stream, whisking.

Drizzle dressing over salad and toss well with salt and pepper to taste.

Salad may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring salad to room temperature before serving.

An easy and simply delicious salad. Quinoa has become one of the healthiest foods. It's packed with protein and other minerals. It's so versatile to prepare. Such as this salad, nothing complicated, tossing all these yummy ingredients with a light yet tasty vinaigrette made it super refreshing and flavorful. It's a great recipe to make ahead for parties or pot-lucks. Allowing it to marinate in the frige overnight will develop more yumminess.
