Summer Salad Series: Grilled Chicken & Black Bean Warm Salad

Sharing is caring!

My Grilled Chicken & Black Bean Warm Salad is a rib sticking, flavor packed one dish dinner perfect for warm weather season.

Isn’t it great that because variety is the spice of life, we tend to prefer different types of food with different seasons. As summer quickly approaches, our thoughts are delightfully turned to summer salads,  fresh fruits, cooking on the grill and yummy beverages!

Our first salad in the series is actually served warm. Now let me just say this, the ‘you can’t do that police’ are not on duty! If you wish to serve it cold, go right ahead. We prefer it warm but it really is good either way.

  1. That salad looks yummy. Just wondering if I can serve it up to my lot and get them to eat it or whether I’ll try it at lunchtime just for me 🙂

    1. I understand. Sometimes it can be difficult to get the family to try new things. We have fallen in love with black beans, hope your family will too! Be sure to get tomatoes in a flavor that your family already enjoys.

We enjoying hearing from you!
