Black Bean Salad Recipe

If I were voted president, the world would be less consumed with guarding wetlands and more focused saving cilantro fields for I have never met a cilantro dish I have not loved.

Of course, if I were voted into office, Nutella crepes would be on the food pyramid, every ladies’ restroom would have a stall especially for little boys who are still practicing their aim, and rest areas would have two Marine’s on guard twenty-four hours a day.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 – 15 ounce cans black beans
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey or sugar
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (red, yellow or orange or for more color, some of each)
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped
  • Sea salt & fresh ground pepper

Open cans of beans and rinse well with cold water. A most lovely natural doctor friend taught me to rinse the beans to prevent excessive gaseous anomalies. You’re welcome.

Place beans and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and then turn down heat to medium low. Cook for 30 minutes.

Rinse beans with cold water until chilled and drain.

Place beans and all remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Stir well and place in a pretty serving dish.

Of course, if everyone ate more cilantro, the world would be a better place and we might not need the Marine guard part, so let’s get started.

Today’s make the world a better place to do list:

1. Eat this bean salad.

2. Buy more Nutella.

3. Vote.
