Black Bean and Sweet Potato Salad

This recipe is from the cookbook Quick-Fix Vegan by Robin Robertson.

Recipe: see page 125 of Quick-Fix Vegan.
This Black Bean and Sweet Potato Salad tastes good and is very healthy. The sweet potato and beans are creamy and that contrasts with the dry crunch of the toasted pecans and the soft wet crunch of the red onion and bell pepper. The dressing is mildly sweet and citrus-y from the lime. 

Ingredients:  black beans, sweet potatoes, yellow bell pepper, toasted pecans, red onion, parsley (or cilantro), hot chile (jalapeno used here), olive oil, lime juice, agave nectar (or sugar), ground cumin, ground coriander, black pepper, salt.
