Southwestern Black Bean Salad
I love making this colorful, salad when the weather warms, it makes enough to feed a crowd and makes a great side dish or appetizer if served with chips. It’s also great as a topping for taco salads or
served with grilled meat and fresh tortillas.
Dovetailing tip: You chopped the red onion during Meal 3. Also grab the diced jalapeno pepper you prepared during Meal 4.
