Black Bean Salad


  • 1 big can black beans (drain and rinse)
  • 1 - 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, diced
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped (or red onion)
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped. (Take all large part of stems off before chopping)
  • 1 jalapeño, minced (remove seeds and membrane for lighter heat)
  • Juice of 1 small lime
  • 1/2 - 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt


Step 1

Combine all ingredients and let the mixture sit for at least 2 hours before serving to meld the flavors. Overnight is even better.

Serves 8 to 10.


Add cooked green or yellow beans to the mixture for more color and even more nutrition.

Liz says: If you’re feeling productive, cook a bag of black beans and use about 16 ounces for this recipe. You can use the rest in bean burritos.

This is a colorful, tasty salad that is a great accompaniment to any Tex/Mex or Cuban menu. Even better, it’s healthy!
