This refreshing salad is bursting with flavor from cilantro and lime. Cilantro is an anti-inflammatory and is a good source of iron and magnesium. Avocados contain ample amounts of fiber, folate, Vitamin K and potassium. Black beans are rich in fiber, folate, iron and protein.
The pictures don’t do this salad justice–my husband asked me to make this salad twice last week. The dressing makes everyone come back for more!
4 cups spinach or mixed greens
1 29 oz. can of Eden black beans (BPA free)
1 large avocado, mashed
1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp. cilantro
1 tsp. Herbamare
Heat black beans in a small pan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl. Stir thoroughly with a large spoon for a minute. Make sure the greens and beans are well coated with the mashed avocado and lime juice. Enjoy!
Makes 4 servings.
