Game day Recipe: The Big Game Black Bean Salad

With the Super Bowl coming up, you'll want to make sure you score on game day with this simple and healthy black bean salad.


I love this simple bean salad.  It's full of bold flavor (from garlic, onion, cilantro, jalapeno and just a touch of honey) and fiber. Make a batch for the big game and serve it with all natural gluten free tortilla chips. Use any leftovers as a condiment or side dish with your favorite proteins like chicken, shrimp, salmon or flank steak.  

The Big Game Black Bean Salad


Juice of 2 limes

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons pure honey or pure maple syrup (not imitation)

¼ teaspoon salt

2 large garlic cloves, finely minced

½ red onion, chopped small

1 bell pepper, any color, chopped small

2 jalapenos, chopped small

3 cans of beans, preferably organic (I used a mix of black and cannellini beans), rinsed and drained very well

Handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the fresh lime juice, olive oil, honey, salt and garlic.  Set aside. 
  1. Combine the chopped red onion, bell pepper, jalapenos and beans in a medium sized bowl. Add the dressing and stir gently to combine. Toss with chopped fresh cilantro leaves. Enjoy!
