black bean garden salad {best salad ever for lunch today}

January 12, 2012

ok, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration!

but honestly, the salad that i made for lunch today just tasted so incredibly good; i think i might have purred when i ate it. *wink*

super simple, nourishing and filling …

black bean garden salad

in a bowl i placed the following ingredients:

fresh spinach leaves

chopped red cabbage

cherry tomatoes, halved

shredded carrots

handful of whole cooked black beans

chopped avocado

crumbled feta cheese


i made a balsamic vinaigrette for the dressing and poured over the top.

{1 part balsamic vinegar to 3 parts olive oil; dash of soy sauce, garlic salt, real salt; squirt of dijon mustard and spoonful of honey – then shake!}

really, this absolutely hit the spot. crunchy, savory, sweet, filling and delish.
