I’m all about adult lunch meal prep lately with school starting soon and I’m excited to share with you this week’s lunch meal prep black bean jicama salad recipe. You are going to love this flavorful, healthy and colorful lunch salad. If you are into meal prepping  you might also want to check out the Greek salad lunches I shared recently.

Lunch Meal Prep Black Bean Jicama Salad Recipe Ingredients

This week’s lunch meal prep is based on the black bean jicama salad I posted on my blog previously. I make this salad often with dinner and love it so much I decided to make it for lunches too. If you want to add extra protein besides the black beans you can definitely add grilled chicken. The ingredients for this salad include romaine lettuce, corn, jicama, tomatoes, cotija cheese, radishes, black beans, and cilantro with your favorite dressing and avocados on the side to add when you are about to eat.

When I find mini avocados they are the perfect size to go with a lunch salad, but if you only can find regular avocados just cut in half and use the other half the next day (I just thinly cut off the exposed part that browns). For dressings, pick your favorite, many different dressing go good with this salad; you can make or buy a simple balsamic dressing, ranch, or the Green goddess dressing from Trader Joes is always a good choice.
