This healthy vegan black bean salad is an easy main dish to make and a great item for your weekly meal prep. One batch is enough for four servings. Full of protein, fiber and healthy fats, it pairs well with roasted sweet potatoes or rice. Adding sliced avocados to this salad right before serving would make it extra delicious. I like my bean salad a little on the spicier side, so I’ve added jalapeño slices and cayenne pepper for a little extra kick, but feel free to omit those ingredients.
In a large bowl combine the rinsed and drained black beans with the chopped olives, red onion, olive juice, and jalapeño slices. Add the garlic, salt, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, and fresh cilantro. I like to add the diced tomato last so it doesn't get too mushy from mixing the ingredients.
