Another great recipe from my talented cousin, Molly. This salad is filling, but fruity. Kale is a great source of folic acid and vitamins A and C.


  • 1 15-oz. can (about 1½ cups) black beans
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • ½ bunch kale, cleaned, dried and finely chopped
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced (or a handful of cherry tomatoes, halved)
  • ½ cup Jack cheese, finely cubed
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ½ bunch radishes, sliced
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 small jicama, diced
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ½ mango, diced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


The Process

1. Warm and season black beans with salt and a tablespoon of cumin in a sauté pan over medium heat. Put aside.

2. Toss all other ingredients together in a large bowl.

3. Top with beans and creamy dill dressing .
