In My Kitchen: Corn and Quinoa Salad

Black beans and corn go together like peanut butter and jelly. But you don’t just have to pair them in a taco or burrito. Try a cold summer salad!

Prep time: 10 min // Cook time: 15 min // Total time: 25 min

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 3 cups corn (about 4 ears), cut from the cob

  • 1 handful cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Salt & Pepper
