Black Bean + Strawberry Salad

2014-05-06 16.38.25

Super easy, lots of healthy things included but tastes like a perfect combination of savory and sweet. It’s wonderful on its own, with tortilla chips or in a taco. I made scallop soft tacos with a homemade whole wheat tortilla. It’s was divine.


You need:


  • One can of black beans rinsed really well
  • 1/2 a cucumber, diced
  • 10-12 strawberries, diced roughly
  • handful of cilantro, roughly torn
  • salt + white pepper to taste, white pepper is a bit more mild and works better with the strawberries, if you don’t have it, you can omit the pepper
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice


To prepare:


Gently mix your beans, cucumber, strawberries and cilantro until incorporated. Add your salt + white pepper and lime juice, mix gently once more until it is all mixed then let sit for at least an hour to really let the tastes meld.


All done!
