Refreshing Summer Bean Salad

If only I discovered this recipe earlier in the summer! This is seriously one of my favorite salads I’ve ever had. Adapted from PopSugar’s Hydrating Cucumber Salad, this cilantro and lime yumminess is the perfect refreshing salad to keep you hydrated and full. Trust me when I say you’ll be packing this salad for lunch every day from now on.
