Tips and Substitutes:

Meal prep
This recipe is super meal prep-friendly. For best results, dice avocado last to avoid oxidation (brown color). I also recommend adding lime juice moments before eating it as well for freshness.
Feel free to play around with the ingredients to make your own kind of bean salad! Add extra vegetables such as zucchini and bell peppers.
Try using pinto beans or maybe a mix of beans to give it more color. I have also tried chickpeas with this recipe and they did not disappoint.
Want to add extra “heartiness”? Try adding cooked quinoa to make it extra filling and delicious!
Since this is a burrito bowl-style or a Mexican salad, try adding a fresh salsa to it! I have have it with salsa verde before and boy was it delicious! There are so many ways to change the overall flavor of this recipe and make it your own.

    hi, this looks very nice. I’m wondering about the 4-5 lemons, juiced? Seems like a LOT of lemons?
    thanks for the clarification.
