Moroccan-Spiced Black Bean Salad
Who doesn’t love a good “meal salad”?
This Moroccan-Spiced Black Bean Salad is super filling and delish.
And there’s something about the convenience of it all – I love having everything I need in one dish.
And although Preschooler and Toddler may not be super fond of it all tossed up together, a deconstructed meal salad works wonders some nights. (Helloooo tacos!)
A good base for any meal salad is:
Grain (rice, 5 grain blend, couscous)
+ Protein (beans, chickpeas, legumes)
+ Veggies (go crazy)
+ nut or cheese or avocado.
This base can literally give you a bazillion options!
For dressing, I always, always keep it simple. No time for fussy stuff here.
This one is simply extra virgin olive oil + fresh lime juice + cumin + coriander + salt and pepper.
Really lovin’ the lime + cumin + coriander combo lately…
This salad is great because you can use it either as a side dish or as a meal salad.
And this new food prop platter from Value Village doesn’t take a bad picture. I love it!
Too bad I can’t put all my recipes on it…that would get kinda boring after a while. I will strive not to be a “once trick pony”
Well, enjoy the salad 🙂
Let me know if you make it and how you have it ie as “the meal” or maybe as a side.
I think it’ll be a perfect go-to picnic friendly dish this summer – summer is coming…right? 😉
