Black Bean Taco Salad

This recipe comes from Betty Crocker.  The combo of black beans and lime juice is so good!

2 (15 oz each) cans black beans, drained and rinsed

1 (2.25 oz) can sliced ripe olives, drained (I left these out)

2 medium tomatoes, chopped (1 1/2 cups)

4 medium green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)

1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I used fat free)

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (NO!)

2 tablespoons lime juice (squeeze your own, it’s so much better than a bottle!)

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 cups chopped fresh spinach

1  In large bowl, mix beans, olives, tomatoes, onions, cheese and cilantro.

2  In container with tight fitting lid, shake lime juice, cumin and pepper until well mixed then toss with bean mixture.  Serve on spinach.

(We ate ours on flatbread, yummy!)
