Ingredients

For Salad:

3 cups cooked black beans
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup cooked millet
1 cup cooked rice (we like pink or forbidden rice)
1 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced
1 cup olives, sliced
1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts, sliced
1 cup frozen corn
3 stalks celery, sliced
1 bell pepper, diced (any color)
1 cucumber, diced
½ red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped

For Dressing:

½ cup olive oil
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs. organic sugar
Real Salt and black pepper to taste

Directions

In a large bowl combine all salad ingredients. Add all dressing ingredients to a mason jar and shake well. Pour dressing over salad ingredients and gently stir to combine.

If you like you can top with some avocado. We wouldn’t suggest mixing it into the salad though because it will go brown fairly quickly. The flavors taste even better if you let it chill overnight however it tastes amazing right away too!
