Black Bean Salad

This black bean salad was awesome. I made it sometime last year but haven’t gotten round to posting it. On that same day I made some dainty pita pockets and that is how I served the salad. Everything was nestled inside my little pita pockets and that was lunch that day.

Black Bean Salad


  • 2 cups black beans
  • 2 cups diced cucumber 
  • 1 cup diced yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes 
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • A bunch finely chopped fresh cilantro or parsley

Salad Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. To make dressing: mix all dressing ingredients and add enough salt and pepper to taste. Shake thoroughly to combine.
  2. Mix all salad ingredients in a bowl. Pour dressing over and toss to combine. Set aside at least 30 minutes for flavours to meld before serving.
