BBQ Bean Salad

More often than not in our busy lives we find ourselves needing a quick and easy meal or side dish. And when you're in a rush sometimes you just can't make your brain think about it! Well no worries! I've been in my fair share of those situations and there are a couple go-to recipes that I always have on hand when I just can't think of anything creative and tasty.

This black bean salad is simple, fast and filling. It is perfectly good as an entire meal for one person or it works great as a side dish for four. Especially when you have some delicious tex mex food to pair it with. And don't even get me started on how good beans are for you!
