Take 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups of water boil together about 12 to 15 minutes. Before you make the salad the quinoa has to be cold.

Squeeze 1 lemon and grate skin, 2 cups black bean (I use 1 can) drain and rinse, 2 cups frozen corn (put in frozen), 1 diced red pepper, 1/2 cup diced onion.

Dressing:

Wisk together 4 1/2 Tablespoons of olive oil, 1 1/2 Tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1 1/2 Tablespoons of honey (I add more) 1 teaspoon of chilli powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, a little black pepper, lemon juice and grated skin, mix all ingredients together and refrigerate for a few hours before you serve.

Hope you give it a try, it’s the perfect recipe for Cinco de Mayo around the corner!
