This black bean mango quinoa salad is  honestly one of my favorite meals to make because it only takes around 15 minutes to prepare and you eat it cold!  I don’t like eating a lot of hot foods in the Summer, especially living in Arizona 110 degree weather YIKES!  I usually make a huge amount of this meal to eat the rest of the week for lunches or dinner.  I like to make dinner three nights a week and just make twice as much and have that same meal again.  Saves me a lot of time in the kitchen.

I love how colorful this meal is!  It makes me so happy!  Mango, pomegranate seeds, black beans, cilantro, green onion, kale, red bell pepper make the perfect Summer salad.
