Easy Salad with Black Beans

I prefer to make salads as a full-meal - LOVE those BIG salads!  Here's one simple idea for doing so!


assorted salad greens of your choice
sweet red bell pepper
red onion
grape tomatoes (optional)
black beans and assorted seasonings (I used salt, garlic powder, olive oil and Italian seasoning)
oil and vinegar of your choice (I used raw coconut vinegar and olive oil)

Amount of each ingredient is not listed, because it depends on what you prefer and have available.


If you are using canned black beans, be sure to rinse them in a strainer under running water and allow the water to drain out fully.  You can also make the beans yourself.  Either way, place the desired amount of black beans in a small skillet along with some olive oil for heating up.  Add seasonings of choice to flavor the beans: I used salt, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning).  Stir together and let the flavors combine on low heat while preparing the vegetables.  Add your salad greens of choice to a large bowl.  Add thinly sliced red onion and red pepper.  Grape tomatoes (or other tomatoes) also go well with this salad, if you'd like to add them.  Now, don't forget to add those tasty black beans!  Finally, add any sort of dressing you like, but I typically use oil (such as macadamia or olive oil) and vinegar (such as balsamic, raw apple cider vinegar or raw coconut vinegar).
