Cilantro Lime Dressing
- 5 tablespoons fresh lime juice, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin

Place 1 cup pre-washed quinoa in 2 cups chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook until all liquid is absorbed.
While the quinoa is cooking, prepare all the remaining ingredients. Add the beans to the cooked quinoa and toss to warm them through. Add remaining ingredients and toss gently.
