Eat: Fall Bean Salad

I made the most delicious salad today. I was dying for something fresh, light, and quick, that wouldn’t feel like a brick in my stomach at yoga. I found something along the lines of what I was craving on food.com and tweaked it quite a bit for my liking. There are all kinds of things you can add to this salad, and I plan to try some new veggies next time I make it. If you like the pretty linen napkin in the photo, you can see my post on making a set for yourself at: Printed Linen Napkins.bean-salad-veggies bean-salad-plated bean-salad-on-server bean-salad-napkin bean-salad-in-collander bean-salad-green-pepper

Fall Bean Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can white beans
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Directions

Step 1
Drain liquid from the beans. I poured both cans in a colander and let them sit in the sink for awhile. I didn't rinse them though because I wanted to keep their salt for flavoring.
Step 2
Chop all vegetables finely including the cilantro.
Step 3
Add vinegar, oil, and sugar to beans and veggies in a large bowl. Mix and add salt and pepper to tast.

 

Enjoy!
