    Inside The Kitchen: Black Bean Salad In Under 5 Minutes #CansGetYouCooking


    1 can of black beans (rinsed and drained)

    3/4 cup pico de gallo (you could make your own if you’d like but I really love Trader Joe’s version)

    3/4 cup diced peppers – use orange and yellow if you can find them

    1.5 tablespoons of Caesar dressing

    3 tablespoons of finely diced cilantro

    A squeeze of lemon (teaspoon if you want to get specific)

    In a large bowl (not the one you are using to serve in), mix everything.

    Serve immediately and enjoy.

    I’m a huge fan of mixing fresh ingredients with whatever I have on hand in my pantry. Canned beans are a HUGE staple in my household. What are your favorite recipes to make with canned beans?
