    Default Black Bean Salad

    Black Bean Salad


    Recipe Description
    Delicious summer salad. Filling and nutritious too.
    Preparation Steps:
    *Notes: I skipped the red onion and cilantro because I didn't have either on hand. I did add some onion powder though.

    Also, I used 1 package (12 oz.) of Bird's Eye steam (in the bag) white & yellow corn vs. a can of corn (we don't buy many canned vegetables here).

    I used dried black beans (soaked before using) vs. canned black beans.

    I ate this alone and skipped the tortilla chips. I bet it would taste great on a bed of lettuce too.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    10 min
    Ingredients:
    1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow bell pepper (diced)

    1/2 cup of red onion (diced)

    1 can of corn

    1 clove of garlic

    1 tsp of cilantro

    1/4 c. olive oil

    4 T. red wine vinegar

    1 tsp lime juice

    salt and pepper to taste

    15 oz can of black beans

    tortilla chips (optional)
    Serves:
    ~6
    Directions:
    combine: 1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow bell pepper (diced),Add 15 oz can of black beans, toss and serve with tortilla chips. 1/2 cup of red onion (diced), 1 can of corn, 1 clove of garlic (minced), and 1 tsp of cilantro.

    Add olive oil, red wine vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Toss.

    Add 15 oz can of black beans, toss and serve with tortilla chips.

    Thanks, this is another of the recipes I managed to misplace in moving - and haven't made time to look up elsewhere. Now I don't have to - thanks to you!

    For those who have not tried this one, it can be served as a dip or a salad, is a GREAT hit at potlucks and picnics, and keeps in the fridge for several days very well. And it's pretty!

    we love it! i crush a clove of garlic and mix that w/ the lime juice and hot sauce while cutting up all other onions and peppers (dont always use) and seeding tomatoes. then mix all together. yum. and filling. sometimes i add some cooked orzo - adds some color to it and makes it go further.

    I love this salad! I make it with one bell pepper, a few seeded chopped tomatoes and the juice of one lemon instead of vinegar. It does not last long in my house. Yum!

    I make this only I use Italian dressing for it and it is really good and easy! I also chop up some jalepeno for it. We use the same recipe for blackeyed pea salad as well! Yummm! I need to make some of this now.

    I'll confirm that this is delicious served on lettuce or a wrap! I make it all the time, it's almost my standard lunch. I never use the cilantro. Not a big cilantro fan.
