I’m all about the quick meals. For two reasons mainly…I usually don’t start thinking about what to eat until I get hungry and I hate making a big mess that I’m going to have to clean up later. One of my absolute favorite lunches (or dinners) is a black bean salad. It’s super simple and tastes great!
(my lovely iPhone shot)
1/2-3/4 cup of black beans (drained & rinsed)
8-10 grape tomatoes
Throw the first 4 ingredients together, drizzle a tiny bit of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), a couple splashes of balsamic vinegar and several splashes of lime juice. Then salt to taste.
It’s seriously, that simple! I LOVE it! The tang of the lime juice gets balanced out by the balsamic vinegar, but by adding a splash or two more of lime juice, you get a nice citrus-y taste that isn’t too tangy.
