In this video I'm going to show you how to make easy black bean salad.

In fact, this healthy salad is so simple to prepare and so satisfying, that it's perfect for a weeknight dinner.

Packed with tuna and crunchy vegetables, this salad is a great source of protein and fiber.

The base for this salad is cooked black beans and canned tuna, but as you can see I made couple of twists using different combinations of vegetables.

Here's a quick list of what you're about to learn:

First, I'll show you how to cook black beans from scratch and have them soft and tender (not mushy) every time.

Next, you'll learn how to prepare quick honey lime salad dressing, which you can use in other recipes as well.

Finally, I'll show you three different ways how to turn this salad into something really special. First variation is: red onions, tomato and avocado. Second variation is: red pepper, cucumber and green onions. And third variation is: sweet corn, celery and parsley.


Black bean salad (Variation 1):
2 cups cooked black beans
1 can tuna
1/2 cup red onions, chopped
1/2 cup tomato, chopped
1/2 avocado, chopped

Black bean salad (Variation 2):
2 cups cooked black beans
1 can tuna
1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
1/2 cup green onions, chopped

Black bean salad (Variation 3):
2 cups cooked black beans
1 can tuna
1/2 cup sweet corn kernels
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped

Honey lime salad dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of half lime
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp dried oregano


In a large bowl, flake the tuna with a fork. Add all other ingredients, pour dressing over salad and toss to combine.

Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed.

Garnish with crumbled feta, toasted sesame seeds or chopped green onions.

Tips for cooking black beans from dried:

Place dried black beans into the pot, cover with water, add 1 small onion, 2 cloves of garlic and couple of bay leaves. Bring to a boil and cook on low heat for 45 minutes. There's no need to add salt at this stage.
