Black Bean Burgers with Tangy Citrus Mayo

We absolutely love black beans. They're awesome. And Melissa wanted to take a stab at creating her own. So she did: Black Bean Burgers with Tangy Citrus Mayo.

A couple of notes: We always use rehydrated black beans, except we didn't plan out enough in advance and found we didn't have enough beans. So we used canned this time. Because of that, when we added salt, the amount was negligible. If you used rehydrated beans, however, you'll need more salt.

Also, Melissa will be working to tweak the binding agents as a couple of the burgers were a little bit loose and one didn't really bind well.

Those burgers sound so good! Oddly, I don't like rehydrated black beans; only the canned variety. Probably because of all the added sodium!
