Quinoa Salad With Black Beans

I usually cook the Quinoa in a rice cooker with extra water (or a broth made with Vegan Bouillon) so it comes out moist. Boil the corn for about 10 minutes and then cut out the kernels from the cob. In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients, add salt to taste. Be generous with the cilantro, add a squirt of fresh lime helps too and voilá! You got yourself an amazing looking and tasting quinoa salad.
