Banana Black Bean Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Food Snob in Israel

A fresh/zippy salad that can be made well in advance and served with a dollop of sour cream and chives/parsley/cilantro as a garnish or alongside fish, rice or something else fun. Mango may be used in addition to or in place of the banana. I developed this recipe to combine the delicious flavors of Island and Latin food with Californian cuisene.

This might be my new favorite black bean salad recipe! And with NO OIL in it - it's quite nutritious too! Thanks for posting it.
