Easy Meal Ideas: Black-eyed Beans Salad

colourful salad ingredients in a wooden bowl

We try to have salads as often as possible, but it’s a pain to wash and dry the salad leaves. This bean salad is filling and full of protein and other awesome things. It can be had as a meal in itself or with some garlic bread and soup on the side.


For a meal for one

  • ½ cup boiled black-eyed peas
  • ¼ cup roasted peanuts 
  • 1 small tomato, cubed
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 small carrot, diced
  • Few pieces of pickled radish or onion
  • A few olives
  • ¼ cup of semi-ripe mango, diced (or Totapuri mango), optional 
  • 2 prunes, cut into small pieces
  • Coriander and Mint leaves to garnish

Salad dressing

I like the store-bought Sweet onion dressing for this one 

You can also quickly make your own dressing with 3 parts olive oil to 1 part lemon (or vinegar). Add a teaspoon of honey or sugar. Mix well and pour over the salad.

Enjoy your health boost for the day!
