Best black bean salad

People are always astonished that my son is a vegetarian. Astonished and worried. I have one Portuguese friend who adores Evan and she even insisted I get blood work done to prove that he is healthy. I did and he is.

Even so, SO often people communicate their worry about his protein intake. You need not.

This is an example of a salad that is loaded with protein. It is also a salad that is so freaking delicious that there is no way you will miss the meat on your plate.
