    Make Lemon Vinaigrette: Whisk together lemon juice, honey, Dijon mustard, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil until smooth and slightly thickened. Cover and set aside.
    Rinse quinoa under cold water until water runs clear; set aside. Bring water, cumin, ½ teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and chili powder to a boil in medium saucepan. Stir in rinsed quinoa. Cover and cook over low heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes; uncover and cool.
    Steam corn in microwave according to package directions; cool. Pour Lemon Vinaigrette into 4 (1-quart each) canning jars. Layer with black beans, quinoa mixture, green bell pepper, corn, cherry tomatoes, and salad blend to jars; slightly press down to compact layers.
    Top with cilantro and green onions. Place lids on jars. Refrigerate in jars for up to 3 days.
