Haaaaaaappy New DECADE, friends!! Can you believe it?! 2020 here we GO. Anyone else still feeling the holidays and the end of 2019? I am feeling them HARD.

What you Need:
- Black beans

SO Fresh (but not the kind like my mom used to tell me I was as a kid… 😛 )
Even better, this salad just couldn’t be easier. It’s literally throwing it all in a bowl,
and adding a delicious, easy dressing made of olive oil, lime, cumin, and salt.
Give a good mix and you have a solid, healthy, hearty salad that’s filling and nutrient rich enough to make a meal! All mixed well together and that’s a bowl full of healthy New Year Resolution goodness. Here are some of my other favorite hearty, healthy salads:
