Veggie Porn: Salad I

Last night I was too lazy to sauté some chicken or fish to add to the salad I made last night. I looked in my pantry and found a can of black beans. Don’t judge me, I had to eat some protein, right. Well I was pleasantly surprised because I was able to wake up on a Saturday before 10am and get quite a bit accomplished. Yeah, it was just one meal; but that meal wasn’t heavy and loaded with chemicals. Starting yesterday, my last meal of the day will be light and packed with vegetables.

NOTE: I simply combined everything in a bowl. If you are making this salad for a get together. Have fun with the presentation. You can leave the ingredients separate on a platter. You can also place the spinach in a large bowl and add the additional salad ingredients individually to smaller bowls (To reduce reactions to food allergies, add serving utensils to each bowl). You can even add the spinach to the container and add the additional salad ingredients in small circles or skinny rectangles on top of the salad.
