  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed

  • ¼ cup orange juice

  • 1 Tablespoon sugar

Instructions
  1. Prepare the vinaigrette by mixing the vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Cook quinoa according to package directions, I like to use one cup water and one cup chicken stock to make mine.
  3. Combine chopped veggies and peach in a large bowl, add in rinsed beans and quinoa when it's cooked. Toss with the vinaigrette and serve either warm or chilled after being in the fridge for awhile.
