Winning Potluck Recipe: Leafy Green Black Bean Salad


Here's a winning potluck recipe for you, Leafy Green Black Bean Salad.  Take it to your next omnivore gathering and watch it disappear.

I constructed this salad to stand alone as a complete meal. I wanted this salad to be able to sustain us through any occasion where we are uncertain of our food choices. Of course, you don't have to wait for an invitation to A potluck before you toss this salad into existence. Make it to cover you for several hearty lunches or light dinners.  Watch the video to see how I put this soul satisfying salad together.
