BBQ Ranch Chicken Quinoa Salad Recipe

I decided to experiment with quinoa tonight after my dear friend Linda dropped off a delicious quinoa dish for us today.  Why I have never cooked with this grain before is beyond me.  It’s so easy to make and is so delicious!  I took some of my favorite ingredients and whipped up a bistro worthy salad!

1 can black beans

    We recently discovered quinoa as well, and I have NO idea why we weren’t making it years ago! So delicious and much healthier for you than rice! I can’t wait to try this!
