Courgette and Corn Taco Seasoned Quinoa Salad

I have no idea what is going on with the colour in this photo, it must have been a weird time of day or something! This was a really tasty salad especially as the courgette was freshly picked from my garden! It had a lovely kick with the chilli.

Cook the quinoa according to packet instructions along with the taco seasoning. (if using frozen corn add it for the last 2-3 mins of cooking.

Mix the quinoa, corn, courgette, black beans, jalapeno, spring onion and coriander in a large bowl.
