Mexican Black Bean Salad

This recipe is a perfect side for a summer BBQ or picnic. It was a big hit at my sister’s wedding a few years ago! Luckily it’s very easy to prepare, because we had to make a lot of it. You can adjust the amount of jalapeño pepper, depending on how much heat you want. It’s also vegan and gluten-free.
