Famous Black Bean Salad
adapted from “Once Upon A Tart”
Early this summer I stumbled across this recipe in a favorite cookbook. I haven’t stopped making it! The ingredients are easy to come by and everyone who tastes it wants the recipe! It is healthy, very tasty, and inexpensive as well! It’s the perfect dish to take to a picnic or BBQ.
3 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 medium avocado, diced
juice of 2 limes
1 tsp. salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. curry powder (or you can use cumin)
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Put the beans in a bowl and pour over the vinegar. Stir and let sit while you chop and add the rest of the vegetables, except the avocado. Whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients and pour over the salad, adding the avocado at the end. Serve at room temperature.
