    Directions

    1. Cook the quinoa according to package directions. Transfer to a bowl and place in the refrigerator to cool for at least 15 minutes.
    2. Whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, agave, cumin, coriander, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooled, cooked quinoa, bell pepper, scallions, black beans, and cilantro, if using. Stir with a rubber spatula until all ingredients are combined and coated in the dressing. Adjust the salt to taste.
    3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, sprinkle crumbled Cotija over the top of the salad, if desired. Salad may be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
