    Annie H's Note:

    This is from kraftfoods.com. I've adjusted it a little for my tastes. If you don't like scallions, a bit of onion power is a nice substitution.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse quinoa in a fine sieve under cold running water. Put quinoa in a pot with 2 1/4 cups water. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer 20 minutes or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender. Fluff quinoa with a fork and transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool.
    2. 2
      While quinoa is cooking, in a small bowl toss beans with vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      Add beans, corn, bell pepper, scallions, garlic, cayenne and coriander to the quinoa. Toss well.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl whisk together lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin and add oil in a stream while whisking. Drizzle over salad and toss well with salt and pepper. Salad may be made a day ahead and refrigerated, covered. Bring to room temperature before serving.
    5. 5
      note: the olive oil can be halved easily.

      I really liked this recipe, and will be making it again. It is light and flavorful (I like all the lime juice in the dressing), but also pretty filling. It makes a HUGE amount of food -- 8 large-ish servings. I used the full amount of olive oil (although the poster said it could be halved), and I suspect the salad would have been a bit dry if the full amount isn't used. Thanks for posting!
