Black Bean Salad

A No-Cook Black Bean Dish For All Summer Long

When it comes to ripe Summer produce, I prefer to do as little as possible in the kitchen: the flavor and texture of the ingredients are already exceptional, so why would you want to cook them to a mushy pulp or overseason them with spices? This black bean salad has plenty of crunch and texture with a slight sweetness from the orange juice. Serve it as a salad, top it over greens, or scoop it onto chips like a salsa. Anything goes!
