Black Bean Salad

Updated: Aug 21, 2021



I thought it was high time I switched up my salad and I am so glad that I did. This salad was the perfect salad to go with my fishcake. However, you can make it anytime you want.

I don’t usually put peppers in my salad but I felt the salad needed some added crunch along with the lettuce. The beans actually tasted nice and added an extra dimension to the boring salads that I have been making. It is also very filling.
