Black Bean Garden Vegetable Salad

Black Bean Garden Vegetable Salad

It is impossible to describe the amount of joy I feel picking fresh vegetables from my garden every morning. This is what I will miss most about summer. I went down and extracted some tomatoes, cucumbers, and basil from the soil and then mixed it with some black bean pasta, frozen peas, spring onion, and avocado. The dressing is light so that the flavors of the last round of summer seasonal garden grabs can really shine. Recipe below.
