Black Bean Salad/Salsa............

This is a salad good pretty much any time of the year, for a light lunch or a great side dish.  It is pretty to look at and it is good for you.  You can pretty much use any ingredients you want that sound good with the beans, because in my opinion, it's all about the dressing.

Black Bean Salad/Salsa


1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
grape tomatoes
green onions
orange bell pepper (or yellow or red)
minced garlic
frozen corn kernels


5-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2    tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2    tablespoons red wine vinegar
2    tablespoons balsamic vinegar
hot sauce to taste
1    teaspoon cumin
1    teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
juice of one lemon

Mix together and pour over salad.  Toss, chill a least 4 hours before serving.

This is so good.  You won't be able to stop eating it, so make plenty!  Great with tortilla chips too!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. This is delicious! I love it. I have also seen it made with black-eyed peas.

  2. I made it with black eyed peas on New Year's Day, like a Texas Caviar, loved it that way too!
