Mexican Bean Salad

Submitted by: GREENMAMA

Introduction

This tastes great over fresh spinach or romaine salad. I use evaporated cane juice instead of sugar because it is less refined, and animal bone char is sometimes used to process white sugar. You can substitute white sugar or agave nectar if you want an alternative, or simply skip the sweetener altogether. This tastes great over fresh spinach or romaine salad.
