This is great to make on a Sunday for a weeks worth of lunches or you could throw in some chicken or beef fajita meat to make it a more complete meal.

Southwestern Pasta Salad
½ lb quinoa (I've been using a quinoa/brown rice blend from CostCo that you microwave in the oven!)
1 ½ c. frozen corn
1 can black beans, rinsed
½ cup each diced red and green bell pepper
½ c. diced purple onion
feta cheese, crumbled (I use fat-free or reduced-fat)
1/3 c. vegetable oil
¼ c. fresh lime juice
1 jalapeno, minced
1 T. cumin
½ tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
Cook quinoa, drain, cool a little.
Whisk all dressing ingredients together.
Add corn, beans, peppers, onion and feta to pasta and add dressing. Garnish with tomatoes and enjoy!
