Black Bean Salad


This salad is my new addiction. I've made it four times in the last two weeks and can.not.stop. I've been eating it on top of fish, with tortilla chips and (shamefully) by the spoonful every time I walk by the fridge. The tangy lime flavor and smokey cumin pair well together and pretty much make my mouth water just writing about it. Best of all, it's chock full of veggies so there's no guilt....Except for the eating it by the spoon part.
