I love the combination of tomatoes & black beans!! Add cilantro and I’m in love even more
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped & pressed
- 1 can/398ml Black Beans (I use Eden Organics brand as they include no salt and the cans are safe!! – rinse very well in water)
- 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
In small fry pan fry onion and garlic in a little water until tender (you can use raw onion & garlic, but I find the raw version is a little too harsh for me so I prefer to gently cook). Move onion/garlic mixture to a bowl. Add black beans, cilantro, lemon juice and tomato and toss well together.
BIG TIP: I’ve been known to make a few salads on a Sunday afternoon (or perhaps Saturday) to prepare for the week. My favourites are Tabouleh, Corn Cilantro Salad and Tomato Black Bean Salad. That way I have salad on hand for the week!!
BUT WAIT – to make things even easier for the week – when I’m wanting to serve salad for lunch and/or dinner I simply add a few handfuls of spinach and/or kale to a bowl (or use any leafy green of your choice that you may have on hand), then top with 1-3 spoonfuls of one, two and/or all three of these three salads (mix and match for variety is really Deee-Lish, use the Corn Cilantro Salad with Spinach for lunch and the Tomato Black Bean Salad with Kale for dinner or even a mix of Tabouleh with Tomato Black Bean Salad with Kale for dinner) – toss and serve.!!
Now that’s just about as easy-peasy as you can get!!
