Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa

I paired this with the Garlic-Lime Pork Chops and what a flavorful plate of dinner!  This is easy, healthy, fresh and delicious!

Serves 4


2 Tsp grated lime zest
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tsp sugar
1 Cup quinoa
1 (15oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 Medium tomatoes, diced
4 Scallions, chopped
1/4 Cup fresh cilantro, chopped


Whisk together lime zest and juice, butter, oil, sugar, 1/2 Tsp salt, and a 1/4 Tsp pepper in a large bowl.

Cook quinoa according to package.  Set aside.

Add quinoa to dressing and toss until dressing is absorbed.  Then stir in remaining ingredients and add salt and pepper to taste.
