As a result of a few ingredients around the house – this salad promised, and delivered. We had pre-made tortillas and beans and frozen, so it was a quick meal to put together on a Friday night when no one wants too many dishes to do afterwards. The salad was teamed with a dollop of natural yoghurt and drops of tabsco as flavoursome addition to the beans. Some guacamole would have been good too but avocados were not around the house.
