Quinoa and Black Bean Salad with Citrus-Coriander Dressing

Serves 4-6


1 cup uncooked quinoa (any colour), rinsed and drained

2 cups water

2 large oranges

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons IP8 Beer Vinegar

½ teaspoon honey or agave nectar

½ teaspoon coriander seeds, toasted and lightly crushed

½ teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

¼ cup chopped cilantro

1 ½ cups (or 1 can) cooked black beans, rinsed and drained

½ small red onion, thinly sliced


Place quinoa and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer over low heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork and spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet to cool.

Prepare oranges while quinoa is cooling. Finely grate the zest of one orange and set aside. Supreme both oranges, reserving the juice (squeeze the orange membranes after segmenting), and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together orange zest, 3 tablespoons of orange juice, olive oil, IP8 Beer Vinegar, honey, coriander seeds, salt, a few cracks of pepper, and chopped cilantro. Adjust seasonings if desired.

Place quinoa, black beans, onion, and orange segments in a large bowl and stir gently to combine. Pour dressing over salad and toss gently to coat
