Black Bean with Lime Salad

I think 'salad' is such a broad term I wish there was something else I could call this. It's a delicious mix of black beans and peppers with a hint of lime to bring it all together. My husband loves black beans and I try to use them often in salads, chili, soups, dips and spreads not to mention serving them along side Spanish rice when we have a Mexican themed dinner. He loves them in any way, shape or form! So it's with my husband in mind I tracked down this recipe some time last year and added it to my collection. I hope you do to.

Black Bean With Lime Salad

2 T fresh squeezed lime juice (1 lime) and about 1/4 t of the zest
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 small yellow pepper, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 T olive oil
salt (about 1/2 - 3/4 t)

Blend all ingredients and either serve immediately or chill and serve. Best if not straight from the refrigerator.Print Friendly and PDF
