Recipe: Black bean salad

Monday, March 24th, 2008 by Marie

This is a great salad, full of fresh raw veggies and rich protein from the black beans. Can be a side dish or a light meal.

Black bean salad


  • 1 1/2 cups black beans, cooked and drained
  • 1 bell pepper, yellow or orange
  • 1 small purple onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1 or 2 limes
  • salt


  1. Chop vegetables finely (de-seed the peppers and tomatoes!)
  2. Toss together beans and vegetables with cilantro and the juice of one lime
  3. Add salt to taste
  4. This salad tastes better if it sits for a couple of hours in your refrigerator before serving.
