MCLV Mange: Tomato & Bean Salad

This Summer’s top cooking ingredient was tomatoes. I got so many gorgeous varieties in my Eatwell CSA box the past few months that I had to keep coming up with new recipes to utilize all the goodness.

One of my go-to’s became this delicious, easy, tomato & bean salad. I always have all the ingredients on hand so it’s perfect to throw together on weekends or even on a weeknight when I needed a side with dinner.

  • 1 Can of chickpeas
  • 1 Cup black beans/pinto/kidney beans
  • 1/2 Cup diced red onion
  • 1 Clove diced garlic
  • 1 Large tomato chopped
  • 1 Pepper diced
  • 1 Cucumber diced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive or hemp seed oil
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 Teaspoon each chili powder, salt & turmeric

Optional additions: Avocado, celery, cilantro, parsley… Anything you’d like really. Which is always my favorite kind of recipe.


  • Chop ingredients
  • In a small bowl whisk together oil & spices
  • Toss dressing until combined – Et voila!

This keeps really well – If you’re not using avocado – So seal it up in a container and eat all week!
