Black Bean & Pumpkin Seed Quick Salad

Black Bean Pumpkin Seed Salad Love salads, especially for lunch. The markets make it so easy and convenient these days by having the packages of lettuce all wash and cut up. All I had to do with this salad was add some more yummy ingredients for a healthy and scrumptious lunch. I loved it so much, I had it the next day too. See how simple and fast this salad is, taste the goodness.
