Friends of ours brought this amazing appetizer to our Summer BBQ a few weeks back. Originally, it is to be eaten as a dip (or Salsa) but truthfully it is just as satisfying to eat straight out of a bowl. Or, serve as a clean colourful Summer side salad. .
After a camping trip this weekend, where out of convenience I bought a “Bean Salad” from the Super Market deli (@ 12 Dollars for a not so large container) I was clearly dissatisfied. So here we are, at a fraction of the cost and enough to feed a large crowd, I am a Happy Camper! ⛺️ (Pun intended). Throw all of these simple easy ingredients in a large bowl. The longer it sits the better it gets!
1 can White Kidney Beans (or black eyed peas) , rinsed
1 can Black Beans, rinsed
1 Celery Stock , diced
1 Tomato, deseeded & chopped
1/2 Red Onion, diced
1/2 Red pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, chopped
1/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
Handful of Parsley , chopped (cilantro if you prefer)
1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 Cup White Balsamic Vinegar
2 TBS coconut sugar
1/2 TBS Chili Powder
A few sprinkles of cumin powder
Salt & Pepper
Squeeze of lime juice .
There are a few recipes out there! This is my version of what I had on hand. Feel free to mix it up or add some heat 🌶 .
