Badass Black Bean Salad

So I am always down for a new bean salad recipe, weird I know, but I LOVE having a fiber rich side item I can enjoy for a few days.  While in North Carolina, Ryan’s aunt Stephanie was kind enough to share her colorful masterpiece.   You can totally spice it up if you prefer a little heat with your fiber.

Note To Self:  Should you be a gassy soul, you might want to eat alone or take a Beano.
