Amazing Mexican Quinoa Salad

Amazing Mexican Quinoa Salad

Rita

"Extremely yummy, spicy marinated salad that will keep in the fridge for up to a week! My kids in university love packing this up for their lunch. You have everything you need for a very healthy meal in one dish! Substitute barley for the brown rice if desired. Turtle beans can be substituted for kidney beans."

I made this recipe for company and it was a hit. I did make changes-used all pinto beans, all quinoa, garlic powder instead of fresh, and lime juice and rice vinegar for the dressing--had no red...
