Caribbean Bean Salad

This bean salad is a go to for me on lazy weekends and get togethers. So easy to pull together. All canned beans is the way to go for quick and easy execution. The best part is that you can use any kind of bean you prefer. Black beans, pink beans, white beans and more. Top with protein of your choice and you have lunch or dinner. Sweet!

I recommend you add the avocado right before serving but if you are planning on leftovers, place the chopped avocados on the side and add to your individual serving.

Watch me make it!

    Super delicious!! Was skeptical about the gandules because I never ate them raw, but this was perfect! I used pink beans instead of red, and I skipped the chickpeas. My teen daughter said it was amazing!!
