Black Bean Cilantro Orange Salad

This salad is an incredible side dish that makes you think of an evening on the Caribbean coast. If you need to eat fiber, hey, this the way to do it in style. The best thing, is that it takes a mere 15 minutes to prepare.
1 teaspoon of olive oil.
1/2 medium red onion cut into 1-2 inch pieces
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder
1 cup canned or soaked black beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped up
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 medium oranges cut into 2 inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
Heat the olive oil in a fry pan. Throw red onions into the pan and fry for a few minutes. Add the garlic and then beans. Sprinkle the cumin over the mixture. Simmer that beautiful combo of loveliness until it is heated through.

There, doesn’t that look amazingly scrumptious? Once your kitchen is filled with the smell of awesome, put the orange wedges in a bowl. Add the red wine vinegar, salt and pepper over the oranges.
Make sure you have chopped the cilantro a bit.
Now as the crescendo of flavor reaches its climax you must walk away for a few moments. What a pity. Let the onion mixture cool for a few minutes. It does not have to be cold or anything but it should not be right out of the pan. Now it’s time to unite these flavors that have been yearning to be together. Mix them all in a bowl and serve them to the happiest people you’ll ever see.

Enjoy!
