Black Eyes Peas and Quinoa Salad Recipe!!

Over the long weekend, we went on a trip and ate lots of junk foods. To balance that, I wanted to eat something light and so I made salad for dinner tonight. I came up with salad on a heavier side! Rather than going for greens, I made salad from beans and quinoa. I mixed avocado, mango and other vegetables as well to smooth out the texture and give some flavor to salad. Here you go everyone, let's make something healthy today :) 
yummilicious :x
