What you’ll need:

1 package of penne quinoa pasta (I found mine at Smith’s) cooked according to package and drained

3 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 C red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 lime (juice)
1 Tsp sea salt
1 Tsp black pepper

1 orange bell pepper chopped into bite size pieces

1/2 red onion chopped finely

1 mango peeled and cut into small pieces

10 slices of jalapeño (I used pickled)

2-3 mint leaves chopped finely

1 bunch cilantro chopped roughly

2 Tbsp fresh dill chopped roughly

What you’ll do:

In a large bowl pour in drained pasta (you can use regular quinoa in place of the pasta if you prefer)

Whisk together oil, vinegar, lime, salt and pepper

Pour the vinegar on the pasta and mix thoroughly

Add peppers, onions, mango, jalapeño, mint, dill and cilantro

Mix thoroughly and taste

Add more salt if wanted

Enjoy!!
