I love how simple this is. It’s as easy as opening a can of beans (though you can totally make your own!), cutting up a tomato, and chopping cucumber. Then you can top it with mustard and anything else you want to add!

I wanted this one to be simple (And I also didn’t want to chop cabbage), so I stuck with this. But it’s delicious with avocado, cilantro, red cabbage, and cashew sour cream too!
