Bron’s Black Bean & Cucumber Salad
I invented this salad last night using quite literally the last ingredients left in my fridge, and I was so pleased with it. Its both fresh and crunchy and 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.
