Southwestern Quinoa Salad

I missed having a Quinoa salad to put in my wrap at lunch, so I made this one.  I am a huge fan of cilantro...and avocado....and wraps  :)

serves 6

1 can black beans
1 avocado diced
1 cup cooked quinoa
about a pint of quartered cherry tomatoes
4 scallions minced
juice of 2 limes
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno minced
salt and pepper to taste

For my wrap, I put the salad on a bed of baby spinach as I always do.
