1. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add quinoa and stir until toasted and aromatic--about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, cumin, and salt; heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed--about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. With a fork, fluff quinoa and set aside at room temperature to cool.
2. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together remaining 4 tablespoons oil, the lime juice, and black pepper. Stir in black beans, corn, tomato, red pepper, green onions, cilantro, chopped parsley, and cooked quinoa.
3. To serve, divide greens among 4 salad plates. Spoon quinoa mixture onto greens. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate until 30 minutes before serving.

sharireland 2y agoVery easy make and quite tasty
dremer 2y agoI added a jalapeno pepper for a little extra kick.
phishphan 3y agoVery good. I have used this twice as a base recipe for quinoa salad. I grill corn on the cob, red & yellow pepper, and red onion cop it up and add it in. Both times I have used a cup of quinoa so I can have more. I did what another person suggested and shredded chicken and made a taco version of this last time. With all that said - it is very good - I don't measure anything just add until it tastes right.

Lallen2903 4y agoThis is awesome! We always make extra for leftovers!
christynelson1 4y agoThis was a really delicious salad. We served it over baby lettuce and had it with a nice piece of poached flounder. The next day I wrapped some up in a tortilla with shredded chicken and it was so good!

Billstap 5y agoI served this tonight to my immediate family of vegetarians as well as my in-laws who are skeptical of any meal that doesn't have meat in it. We all loved it! Even the 5-year-old and 1-year-old ate it well. The only change I made was to eliminate the cilantro (a few in the group don't appreciate it) and increase the parsley. I also sprinkled some small pieces of salmon on top that had been coated with Thai coconut curry panko bread crumbs. We all agreed that while this was a nice addition it wasn't necessary as the salad really was great on it's own. This is definitely a make-again!
