Black Bean & Kale Salad

Summer = BBQ’s and potlucks! It also means the typical salsa and chips, caesar salad, potato salad, and brownies… Not that there’s anything wrong with those foods in moderation, it just makes it a little trickier for people following a vegan and gluten-free lifestyle. We had a potluck at the office last week and my salad was a hit! Although most people typically go for quick and easy at potlucks and BBQ’s (which isn’t necessarily the healthiest) people were grateful to see “healthy” food available. I literally made this salad at 10:00 the night before and it took me no more than 15 minutes. I would highly suggest it for any get together. The beautiful colours in this salad scream summer to me!
