Zesty Quinoa Salad

Ingredients:

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 limes, juiced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste
1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
5 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions:
Boil quinoa and water together in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, approximately for about 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside to cool. Whisk olive oil, lime juice, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl. Combine quinoa, tomatoes, black beans, and green onions together in a bowl. Pour dressing over quinoa mixture; toss to coat. Stir in cilantro; season with salt and black pepper. Serve immediately or chill in refrigerator.
