I’m Leanna. This blog was born out of the chaos of mommin’ hard all day everyday while tackling little projects along the way! I hope you can find some easy DIY inspiration, family friendly recipes, and some other fun things to make your day while you are here.
This Southwest Black Bean salad is perfect for summer. It is easy to make for a crowd, and also makes a great side dish or appetizer served with your favorite tortilla chips. You can also add it on top of salad, or serve it along side of grilled meat or fish.
I made this easy side dish salad for Fathers Day because it is Simon’s favorite! Not only can you make this recipe in under 10 minutes but it is also super healthy! It is packed with protein and fiber.
What I love most about this southwest black bean salad is that you can easily change it up depending on what you may have in your kitchen.
You can make it right before you serve it, but I always recommend at least waiting 30 minutes for the juices to marinate! It always tastes better the next day!
My favorite way to enjoy this southwest black bean dip is with chips, or on top of a salad but the ideas are really endless!
If you love healthy and easy side dishes, don’t forget to check out the Greek Pasta Salad. It is my favorite dish to bring to any BBQ party in the summer!
As always, I hope you enjoy this delicious and fresh salad this summer! Don’t forget to tag me over on instagram @lifebyleanna if you decide to make it! I love to see you try out my recipes!
