Bean quinoa corn salad

1 cup quinoa, well rinsed
1.5 cup cooked fresh or frozen corn kernels
Juice of one lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
2-3 scallions, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and ground pepper to taste

bean mixture

1 cups cooked or canned pinto or kidney beans
1 cup finely diced ripe tomatoes
1 tablespoon balsamic or cider vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

To make quinoa-corn mixture, bring 2 cups water to a boil in a small, heavy saucepan. Add quinoa and simmer gently, covered for 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork, then let cool to room temperature. Transfer to a mixing bowl and combine with remaining ingredients. To make the bean salad, in a separate bowl, combine all ingredients and toss together. To assemble, transfer quinoa-corn mixture onto center of plate. Make a well in center about 5 inches in diameter. Mound bean salad in the well.
