There's an over abundance of soup in the fridge right now so as much as I wanted to make black bean soup I opted for salad. I love how colorful this is, especially because CT is pretty colorless these days. I'm not missing soup for a minute, this stuff is delicious. Anytime I can use lime and cilantro...it's a good day.
Black Bean Salad
2 cans black beans drained and rinsed
1/2 English cucumber seeded and diced
A handful of grape tomatoes halved
4 scallions sliced
A few small sweet red peppers chopped
A bunch of cilantro chopped
2 limes zested and juiced
2tbs olive oil (I used chipotle infused)
1 clove garlic grated
Salt, pepper, and a pinch of chili powder and cumin
Toss all other Ingredients together with dressing. So simple.
