Bron’s Black Bean & Cucumber Salad

Updated: Jul 20

I invented this salad last night using quite literally the last ingredients left in my fridge, and I was so pleased with it. Its fresh, crunchy, filling and satisfying, and it ticks just about every nutritional box. Its packed with protein, fibre, healthy fats and a good diversity of micronutrients, and its filling enough to stand alone as a meal.


1 Can black beans (rinsed well)

½ a cucumber, chopped small

2-3 spring onions

1 ripe avocado, cubed

1 handful fresh cilantro (coriander), chopped

1-2 rounds of crumbled feta cheese


⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup white wine or apple cider vinegar

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon dried dill

½ teaspoon ground coriander spice

¼ teaspoon herbal salt

Combine the salad ingredients in a bowl, adding the avocado last.

Combine the dressing ingredients in a blender and pulse until well combined. Pour over salad and toss gently.
