Healthy Black Bean Salad

Double or triple the recipe for a great potluck party side dish. On busy weeknights, it's also wonderful to have on hand in the fridge. Scoop some of your black bean salad into a whole-wheat tortilla, or blend with some crispy Romaine lettuce for a really big-sized salad. Enjoy with some fresh corn on the cob.
