Quinoa and Black Bean Salad

Well it is not Tasty Tuesday, instead it is Sunday and I am preparing my meal plan for the week and I just cannot get enough of this Quinoa and Black Bean Salad recipe I got from the FIXATE cookbook!! It is healthy, it is delicious, and it can be taken on the road with you (which this past week I needed!)

I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you! 

This can be used for lunch, a side dish, dinner - whatever fits your schedule it will work!!
