Last weekend I ran the Foam Fest with a group of my favourite people, which is a 5K obstacle course that involves a lot of running through mud and foam. I decided to celebrate with this glorious Chipotle Black Bean Kale Salad… well really we celebrated with burritos, vodka, popcorn, and lots of movie watching… but you know… eventually the next day I ate salad. Health and what not…er.

Hearty, spicy, bursting with a flavour bomb of beans, topped on hearty kale, and then drizzled with a little Chipotle Lime Dressing this is my new favourite salad. It’s like a fiesta in your mouth. Vegan and gluten free #itdoesnttastelikechicken

Ok so maybe I didn’t celebrate the race with salad, but I easily could have. This salad is so scrumptious and hearty delicious I just had to share it with you guys immediately. If you follow me on Snapchat @bonappetegan, you know I am a big fan of monster salads.  Get those greens in!

Hearty, spicy, bursting with a flavour bomb of beans, topped on hearty kale, and then drizzled with a little Chipotle Lime Dressing this is my new favourite salad. It’s like a fiesta in your mouth. The beans are actually so flavourful these would be awesome used in so many dishes, and they are super quick and easy to make too. Would make an awesome burrito!  …but this is a salad post Sam, think salad. Geeze.
