Black bean and Rice Salad 


2 cup chopped Romaine lettuce (or mixed greens, but I like Romaine because it's sturdier)
1/2 cup cooked rice (either white or brown) 
1/2 cup cooked black beans--canned are fine
2 tbs. chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped tomato
2 tbs. cilantro leaves
Balsamic vinaigrette--we make our own, but Newman's Own is great.


On a bed of chopped Romaine, layer in the following from bottom to top:
black beans
red onion
cilantro leaves

Add Balsamic vinaigrette to taste.
