Green Salad with Salmon, Black Beans, and Mandarin Oranges

green salad with salmon, black beans, and mandarin oranges

Canned salmon is another handy pantry staple!

Not gonna lie, canned mandarin oranges are delicious in this. I get the kind in white grape juice, I think, not in syrup, but still, I'm going to try this with actual oranges, maybe cuties...

a can of black beans
3 tablespoons orange juice
1/4 cup olive oil
half a can of salmon
mandarin oranges
an avocado

Rinse and drain the black beans. Whisk the orange juice with the olive oil, and marinate the black beans in the vinaigrette. If you made extra marinated beans when you made quinoa salad, you can use whatever you have and just take them out of the fridge.

Halve, pit, peel, and dice the avocado. Make a bed of avocado and baby spinach, then top with salmon, marinated black beans, and mandarin oranges.
