Quinoa Cowboy Salad

The original recipe for this salad came from a co-worker of mine 6-7 yrs ago.  I have loved making this salad each summer and usually eat it with chips.  This last time I threw in some cooked quinoa and ate it as a salad.  Just as delicious and healthier!

16 oz bag frozen corn

2 cans black beans, drained & rinsed

1 medium red onion, chopped

2 ripe avacados, chopped

3 lrg beef tomatoes, chopped

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 lime, juiced

1 T apple cider vinegar

1 cup cooked Quinoa (simmer 2 cups water with 1 cup quinoa for 15 minutes.  Turn off heat and let set to cool.  Chill in fridge.)

Mix all above ingredients and serve as a salad or with  scoop Tostitos.

Grilled Peach w/ goat cheese & honey

Split a peach in half and take the pit out.  Spray grill or grill pan and grill peach about 10 minutes.  Let cool 5-10 minutes and sprinkle on some goat cheese and drizzle on honey.
Chopped Mango

no recipe necessary :)

Great for summertime!  Delicious.

OH By the way, those cookies just below this post….oh  my, they are way too good!  Even straight from the freezer.
