Black Bean Salad

I simply had to share this refreshing salad I made yesterday!  I used spinach, tomatoes, corn, black beans, red bell pepper, chives, and cilantro.  I used my favorite dressing on top. Organic Ville dressings are so good. The only other one I tried so far was french, and that one is great too. I’m going…
