Black Bean Salad

I hope everyone has had a good weekend.  I know I'm getting you your recipe later than normal.  This holiday has knocked my schedule out of wack.  One of the side dishes I made this weekend was Black Bean Salad.  I served it up on a bed on romaine.  It is fresh, light and goes well with anything you have coming off the grill.  Try it for yourself!

Black Bean Salad

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup chopped tomato
1 avocado, pealed and chopped
1 small zucchini, quartered horizontally and sliced
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1 1/2 Tbsp. minced fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp. minced fresh flat leaf parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp. lime juice (you can use lemon)

This is pretty self explanatory.  All you do is put the bean and veggies in a bowl.  Top them with the salt, pepper, cilantro, parsley and lime juice.  Mix it all together.  

You can always put your own twist on this.  Use different veggies.  Add a chopped jalapeno.  Make a dressing to use on it.  It is so easy to make, it is an idea you want to keep on hand for your summer outings.
