Fiesta Bean Salad

This is seriously the most refreshing, delicious, FILLING salad. You can use it as a side or even as an entire meal. And it makes great leftovers!

What You Need:

2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp cumin
pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup minced red onion, finely diced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 medium avocado, diced

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix the garlic, lime juice, and olive oil, cumin, pepper flakes, and salt.
  2. Then, in the same bowl, mix black beans, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro together with the dressing.
  3. Add avocado right before serving.

21-Day Fix Container Counts:

Beans – 1 yellow
Tomatoes/Onion – 1/2 Green
Avocado – 1/2 blue

Tip: I would consider adding the avocado only to the portion that you are going to eat to avoid having it get brown. Add right before you serve each time. Just a thought!
