We are all about the cool, crisp, and refreshing summer produce. We talk about eating seasonally a lot, and one reason why is because it gives you more variety (both in flavor and nutrient content) and brings excitement back to the food you’re eating. It allows you to shift your diet, maybe get creative with your cooking, and keep healthy meals/salads fun and delicious so you don’t get bored.
This salad looks beautiful, but the combination of textures and flavors is amazing, too! You could eat it all on its own, add a choice of protein to it if you want (grilled shrimp would be perfect), or eat it...
In the summertime, it’s all about the cool, light, refreshing foods. We find that we (and mostly everyone) naturally gravitate toward meals like this naturally this season; it’s just what our bodies want! A fresh black bean salad totally fits the description.
This black bean salad is super easy and quick to throw together, because all you have to do is combine a few ingredients and you’re good to go. We love having this on hand in the fridge to add to salads, as a side in our bowl for lunch or dinner, as a taco topping, or simply as a dip— also making it great to bring to parties.
