Knorr’s Black Bean Salad

Beans salad is one of my favorite recipe, it’s healthy, rich in protein and amino acids. I mostly have Beans salad in lunch but if I feel lazy don’t want to cook beans salad is the easiest dinner recipe for that day.

Few days back I got a newsletter with some really interesting recipes in it. One I really liked was Black Beans Salad. It’s really easy and quick to make and nutritious too. From the recent researches it has shown that black beans provide special support for digestive tract health. It’s rich in protein, fiber and essential nutrients. In fact, unlike dietary sugar, which can move very quickly through the digestive tract and out of the digestive tract into the bloodstream, or dietary fat, which can move very slowly through the digestive tract and out of the digestive tract into the lymphatic system or bloodstream, both protein and fiber can move through the digestive tract at a moderate pace. So, including Black Beans into your diet can definitely help you. So let’s start cooking this amazing and easy recipe –

This recipe can serve up to 4 servings
