A classic black bean salad is a must for picnics and potlucks. This vegan version gets its creaminess from blended avocado. Any mix of salad greens will work well, but try arugula if you want to give this hearty salad a peppery kick.

This was really yummy and got rave reviews. The dressing can be made ahead and refrigerated it won t discolour. I ve never tried soaking onions it worked really well left the flavour without the overwhelming taste and odour. I will be making this often. Read More
