Spicy Mexican Salad (Vegan With Raw Option)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by magpie diner

This originated from an article in Common Ground magazine. If you use sprouted lentils it's 100% raw. To do that you obviously have to plan ahead, so cooked/tinned black beans are a great sub. This salad is super healthy, fresh and tastes great! Serve immediately after preparing, or chill for up to two hours.

I love salads like this! So pretty and so healthy! I halved the recipe and we still have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow. This evening I served it in a wrap with some lettuce and chik'n. I didn't have any bell pepper or avocado so I added some cucumber and some zucchini instead (loved the zucchini in this). Also used the black bean option. THANKS!
