Southwest Black Bean Salad!

It’s salad season!!  

Hooray!!  There are so many healthy and delicious salads to make it is hard to choose, but if I want a substantial meal out of a salad, Southwest Black Bean Salad is one of my go-to meals.  Rich in protein, complex carbs, and fiber this superfood salad should be on everyone’s summer menus.  

As Amybeth Hurst said ” A perfect blend of protein, spice, vitamins and fiber.  A wonderful dish!”

I prefer to cook my beans fresh.  I don’t like the idea of my beans being pressure cooked in a tin can which is what you get from the grocery store, so I will cook up a big batch then freeze smaller portions for later use making dishes like this one a snap to make.

 A healthy and delicious mix of raw fresh foods and cooked beans for a truly healthy and balanced plant based meal.

Southwest Black Bean Salad

Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well. Let sit for a few hours to let the flavors blend.  

Delicious in a wrap with greens, as a side salad with veggie burgers, or by its self as a meal.
