Roasted Salmon, Quinoa and Black Bean Salad

This salad presents a trio of ingredients with incredible health halos. Consumers associate salmon with heart health promoting omega-3. Quinoa, a popular ingredient in Peruvian kitchens, is increasing in popularity as consumers seek out more whole grains. And black beans provide fiber, protein, and low glycemic index carbohydrates that provide long-lasting energy. But enough about the nutrition benefits; this salad should be sold on flavor, with a dressing that bridges the richness of the salmon, the nuttiness of the quinoa, and the sweetness of the black beans.
