summer salad roundup

I am utterly obsessed with cold summer salads- and I’m not just talking about some vegetables plopped on top of iceberg lettuce (although I find iceberg lettuce oddly satisfying sometimes). Nope- we’re talking salads with quinoa, beans, rice noodles, and more.

Luckily, salad is defined very loosely so I’m taking advantage of that! According to Wikipedia, they are usually cold (but can be warm), they usually use raw ingredients (but can used cooked ones), and they usually use vegetables (but can incorporate fruits). One strict factor: they have more than three ingredients. Duly noted. Now onward!

Corn + quinoa + black beans + tomatoes + cilantro + red onions + spices + lots of vinegar and hot sauce!
