½ cup dry quinoa
1½ cups water
1½ tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons lime juice
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon ground coriander (dried cilantro seeds)
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

  3. Combine chopped vegetables with the black beans in a large bowl, and set aside.
  4. Once quinoa has cooled, combine all ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
