This is not your typical “ham salad”.
Nope, this isn’t to be used in a sandwich.
It’s a fresh new take on ham + salad!
I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed this Clean Eating Ham & Black Bean Veggie Salad once I FINALLY made it. Honestly, this ingredient list has been sitting in my e-mail from my friend, Sarah for over a year. She sent me a photo and the ingredients she used and thought it would make a great addition to Grounded & Surrounded.
She was right!
What I didn’t expect was how much my 8 year old son would love this salad. He gobbled it up it on three different occasions.
I do think topping this salad with avocado helped. 😉
This sweet boy of mine would eat ONLY avocados and guacamole if I let him!
You will love the freshness and brightness of this salad.
The fresh vegetables and the colors of those veggies are just lovely! Using red, yellow, and orange mini bell peppers, red tomatoes, and green cilantro add both color and taste to the bowl.
The simplicity of this recipe is also something to write home about. There are only 9 ingredients and the dressing is only extra virgin olive oil.
Simplicity of flavors at it’s best if you ask me!
Planning and preparing this Clean Eating Ham & Black Bean Veggie Salad after a holiday meal will help use up your leftover ham. Just make sure you have a can of black beans, feta cheese, and a few fresh vegetables on hand too.
I didn’t have any leftover ham to use, but I found a package of diced ham at Target that worked just as well. 🙂
