Black Bean Lime Salad

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! Are you hungry for a salad? Why then try this! Take a look!


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


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!

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.

Thought of the day~ Living in the past is a dull and lonely business; looking back strains the neck muscles, causes you to bump into people not going your way!
It's okay to visit the past, if you want to. Some of the people in your life today came from the past and it's comforting to know. But don't be afraid to live today and tomorrow, meeting new people and exploring new relationships! Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

    Thought of the day -- so true! Another reason to look @ the past would be to see how far you've come! Otherwise, the present is where we need to be present!

This recipe is a keeper. I love black beans (and chick peas) for protein as I try not to have a lot of meat in the diet.

Have a great weekend.
