Enjoy this beautiful, delicious, healthy salad!!

*You can add or substitute ingredients to your liking. Don’t like a certain kind of beans? Switch it out for another. The last time I made this, I forgot to get celery, but had an English cucumber, so added ½ of one, chopped. It was good! I also sometimes add the juice from 1 lime, or 1 lemon, whatever you have, and some fresh, chopped cilantro, very yummy additions. You really can’t go wrong with this one. Mangia!
