Mexican Black Bean Quinoa Salad

This is a recipe that was recommended to me from a friend.  The recipe is adapted from a Penzy magazine.  It is delicious and I just love the flavor combo!  A guide to cooking quinoa is found here on the blog Quinoa. -Kristin

1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup diced green onions, white and green parts
