Can I meal prep this recipe?
I usually make a double batch of this Weight Watchers black bean salad. It’s very similar to my cowboy caviar recipe but it’s got a little less starchy veggies and more fresh veggies / healthy fats.
After it’s prepared the avocados will lose their green hue pretty quickly. This doesn’t bother me and it doesn’t impact the taste so I don’t worry about it. If you don’t like that…you can always divide up your avocados and use them in each portion. It’s about 1/4 avocado per serving.
If you do meal prep this recipe make sure to give it a good stir before eating and you’ll be all set. Thanks to the lime juice the fresh tangy recipe will be better after a day or two with the flavors melding together.
Can I substitute ingredients into / out of this black bean salad?
You can absolutely add things or take things away that you don’t like. I sometimes use pickled onions in this recipe if I have them on hand. You could easily add other fresh vegetables like chopped cucumbers, corn, or even slivered carrots.
The only thing you’d need to keep in mind is the points if you are on Weight Watchers. You’ll need to recreate the recipe on the WW app or the website and plug in whatever you use / don’t use so you can get an accurate idea for tracking your meals.
It’s a very flexible recipe so you don’t have to worry about it not “working” if you take things out or add them in. Feel free to use regular lime juice or even lemon juice if you don’t have access to the key lime juice…you can always get a few key limes and just juice them for an extra fresh taste as well!
