Healthy Mango and Qunioa Salad

Mango lends a sweet note to this colorful quinoa salad with a variety of flavors and textures. It's equally delicious served warm or chilled.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup quinoa
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and diced
  • 2 ears corn, kernels removed
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 3 Tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon grated lemon zest

Directions

Rinse quinoa in a fine sieve until water runs clear, drain and transfer to a medium pot. Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside off the heat for 5 minutes; uncover and fluff with a fork.

Add remaining ingredients and toss until combined.
