Black Bean Lime Salad


This is a DELICIOUS black bean salad that I had to share with you! It's light, and fresh, and perfect for summer parties or barbecues. The lime juice makes it extra tasty. You can serve this with chips, as a topping for a taco/burrito bar, or as a side for hamburgers or grilled chicken. Great recipe!!

Black Bean Lime Salad

Ingredients:
3 cans black beans, rinsed
2 colored peppers, diced (or a mixture of red, yellow, orange, green - whatever you like!)
1/3 cup red onions, diced small
A large handful of chopped cilantro
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 2 limes
1/4 cup of olive oil
A little salt to taste
Optional - diced avocado - add right before serving

Instructions:
Add all ingredients together in a bowl, gently toss until mixed, cover and put in fridge for at least an hour to let flavors blend. If you are adding avocado, add right before serving. Enjoy!

Notes:  
To add a different kick, you can add 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar instead of the lime juice. Or you can add both if you would like.
