    Chef #338124's Note:

    Quinoa is a fast-cooking, protein-packed whole grain. Steamed, it makes a perfect partner for lime-spiked black beans and fresh tomato.

      Great dish ... especially for summer. Quinoa comes out perfect, and the "dressing" is ideal for a fresh light side or lunch. I find myself making this at least once a month.
