Black Bean Salad – Leftover Makeover

I made a really easy black bean salad, with beans leftover from making the Black bean Tortilla rolls. For this salad I used carrots, red onions, green and red bell peppers all giving a variety of flavors all that compliment black beans really well.
To tie it all together, I simply added salt, lemon juice and cilantro for freshness.

Who says healthy can’t be tasty?

1/2 cup black beans
1 carrot, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/4 red onion, diced ( If red onions are too intense for you, substitute with scallions/green onions or chives)
1/2 jalapeno, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, toss well and serve.

(Did that even need directions?!)
