Black Bean Salad {Summer Salad Series}

Today's salad in the Summer Salad Series is from Jen of Migonis Home. I LOVE this Black Bean Salad, because it wears a lot of hats (or should I say, sombreros?).  It can be a salad, a side dish or a dip for chips! Please welcome Jen, and when you are finished making this tasty salad, go check out her beautiful home in Massachusetts.

Salad Boredom. It's a thing, people. Get stuck eating the same ol' salad and soon you're graduating to Milk Duds and Rootbeer instead.
