Summer Bean Salad

[print_link] The Summer Bean Salad is very simple, easy to create, and tastes so nice. It has been a favorite for many of our guests and for me it is a good lunch now and then.
Just Chop, gently mix and chill! The number and types of beans can be varied to suit your tastes or what is in the pantry. I love to mix for color and presentation, although I do have my favorites types. The recipe really is this easy.


1 – can – 15 1/2 ozs black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 – can – 16 ozs butter beans beans (rinsed and drained)
1 – can – 16 ozs pinto beans (rinsed and drained)
(red kidney beans would also work well and they add color)
2 jalapenos seeded and minced
1/2 red bell pepper (minced)
1/2 red onion (minced)
2 stalk celery (finely chopped)
1/2 a bunch of cilantro leaves (finely chopped)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
