Black Bean Salad

As a vegetarian, beans are a great way to get in some protein.  This recipe is kid tested and approved.  So if you have a finicky eater like I do, rest assured that you will not have any leftovers of this salad!  In fact, you better get your serving in first or you just might miss out altogether.  ?
