Yes, my friends and family, it’s another Monday…
It’s really gonna be ok, though…
we’re gonna get back on track with our “Healthy Monday” recipes and they will change your world this week…
trust me…🙂
This is a delicious salad I made last week 
and it stayed very fresh all week long.  
You can eat it in a bowl or my favorite way–in a wrap!  
It was very wonderful!
I sent one to work with that sweet man–he text me later and said,
 “Where’s the meat in this wrap and what are 
the little black things that 
keep falling out all over the place?”  
“No, meat,” I replied.  It’s a ‘healthy wrap’.”–sigh…
Well, I really enjoyed it anyway and I hope you do too 🙂

Southwest Quinoa Veggie Salad
 
1 cup cooked Quinoa–according to directions on box
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups chopped peppers–I used the small sweet ones, 
but any bell peppers will do
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2 TBSP fresh lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
 
In a bowl, combine quinoa, black beans, chopped peppers, 
cilantro, and green onion. 
In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients 
and pour over salad and stir until combined.
Enjoy! 
 
The Cast of Characters…
 
 
In a large bowl, combine the quinoa,
 
 
the drained and rinsed black beans..
 
 
Look at these beautiful tiny peppers!  
They make me smile–I don’t know why–but they do 🙂
 
 
Chop those babies up…
 
 
Add them to the bowl…
 
 
Chop the green onions…
 
 
Like this…
 
 
Throw them in the bowl…
 
 
Add the chopped cilantro…
 
 
Slice the limes and give them a squeeze…
 
 
Add about 2 TBSP in a small bowl…
 
 
Add the cumin…
 
 
And the chili powder…
 
 
Pour the oil in next…
 
 
Give it a stir and pour it over the salad…
 
 
Isn’t it pretty??
 
 
Stir and serve it up!
 
 
This is how I enjoyed mine 
all week at work–
in a wrap!
 
I love the Joseph’s flatbread–I get it at Walmart by 
the deli counter–very healthy and tasty…
 
It is really huge…
I love sour cream on my wraps, but I am tricking myself into thinking this Greek yogurt is the same…
It worked pretty well 🙂
I threw on just a little shredded cheese…
I rolled it up and had a wrap for a couple of days at work.
It was wonderful 🙂
