Recipe Tuesday-Cool Beans Salad

With the temperatures rising, I am always looking for great easy recipes that require little to no cooking.  This recipe definitely fits the bill.


1/2C  Olive Oil                                                        1t     Salt
1/4C  Red Wine Vinegar                                          1t     Ground Cumin
1T     Sugar                                                            1t     Chili Powder  
1       Garlic Clove, Minced                                    1/4t    Pepper

I start with the dressing first:

Combine 1/2 C Olive Oil, 1/4 C Red Wine Viengar, 1T Sugar, 1 Garlic Clove (minced), 1t Salt, 1t Ground Cumin, 1t Chili Powder and 1/4t Pepper.
 Gently whisk together.
 Then add 3 C of cooked rice.  The recipe calls for Basmati but we prefer Jasmine.
Then add 1 bag of frozen sweet corn, thawed.
Then add one can each, Black Beans and Red Beans, rinsed well and drained.
Then add 4 Green Onions, sliced thinly.

Add 1/4C minced Cilantro (optional).  Toss until well combined. Chill until serving.

This recipe is great for BBQ and Picnics.  You'll definitely be a hit!  ENJOY!

  1. This would be tasty. I like the seasonings you used. I'll often make a couscous salad but the rice would be a very nice change from that.
