Ingredients

Salad ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons sundried tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 2 cups quinoa cooked
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 4 ounces feta crumbled (can substitute goat cheese)
  • 2 avocados sliced
  • 8 cups salad mix Romaine, or iceburg lettuce
  • optional ingredients: corn green or red onion, zucchini, jalapenoTexas Vinaigrette
  • 1/3 cup good olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Mix vinaigrette ingredients together and refrigerate.
  2. Cook quinoa
  3. Mix black beans, sundried tomatoes and capers together with 3 tablespoons Texas Vinaigrette. If I'm serving the salad with warm quinoa I warm this mixture in microwave.
  4. Arrange salad: Add a bed of lettuce to 4 plates, top with 1/4 of each black bean mixture, tomatoes, quinoa, feta, and avocados. Drizzle more Texas Vinaigrette over if needed, but it has strong flavors, you may want to taste first.
  5. Enjoy!
