  1. It looks like there are other beans and lettuce in the photo. Is this the correct photo for this salad? Can I add black beans to this?

    • Sometimes I add roasted red peppers, black beans, corn, or other veggies to this salad. It gives it more color and flavor. Add what you like or make it as the recipe indicates. It’s the correct photo with the added veggies.
