This is a great, zesty side for burgers or barbecue. It also works as a main dish over kale or in a nice tossed salad. If you don’t have green tomato, omit it and add a bit more diced red tomato.

Black Bean Salad with Cucumber and Tomato

  • 3 cups black beans, cooked and drained
  • 1 lemon cucumber, diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 small green tomato, diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 small red onion, dice (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • salt/pepper

Mix beans (rinse if using canned) tomatoes, onion, and cucumber together. Stir to mix. Add oil, vinegar, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
