Southwest Quinoa Salad

Looking for a quick an easy meal that you can make and store for up to a week? This quinoa salad is packed with protein, vegan and is very similar to the black bean and quinoa salad that you can buy at Whole Foods in the prepared foods section. Give it a try and let me know in the comments what you think.
