Recipe Notes


The salad (minus the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt dressing) will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.  Just add the dressing when you’re ready to eat the salad or in the morning if it’s being packed to go. If using canned black beans or corn, rinse well.  


Serving Suggestions:

  1. Top with 1 Tbsp chopped raw onion for an extra kick.
  2. Top with ¼ cup croutons.
