Ingredients

    1 can Meijer Organics Pinto Beans (15 oz)
    1 can Kuner's No Salt Added Garbanzo Beans (15 oz)
    1 can Kuner's No Salt Added Black Beans
    1 can La Preferida Green Chiles, diced (4 oz)
    1.5 cups frozen corn kernels (no sodium)
    1 cup finely diced bell peppers (green, red, yellow)
    5-6 medium scallions, sliced finely, incl green parts
    1 TBSP fresh cilantro, finely chopped
    1/4 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
    2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    2 tsp white vinegar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp chili powder
    1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Tips

Use different colors of peppers to add color to the salad.

Use fresh cilantro (I get it at Farmer's Market in Clinton Twp). Wash the cilantro, removing large stems; chop in food processor. Put leftover chopped cilantro in a zip lock bag in a small shallow bowl; freeze; remove bowl, put back in freezer. To use in future, break or cut off amount you need from the frozen block.


Directions

Drain and rinse the 3 cans of beans (to reduce sodium); place in bowl. Add remaining ingredients; adjust seasonings to taste. (esp. salt)

Chill or serve at room temperature.
