                                          MEXICAN BEAN SALAD
1(15oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained        zest of 1 lime
1  " "      "    kidney  "          "       "      "              juice of l lemon    
1  " "      "    cannellini beans"       "      "             juice of 1 lime
1 10oz pkg. frozen corn kernels                         1 tablespoon white sugar
1 red bell pepper, chopped                                1 teaspoon salt
1 red onion, chopped                                        2 cloves crushed garlic
1 jalapeno, chopped, seeds removed                 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Dressing:                                                        1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 cup olive oil                                               1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup red wine vinegar                                  1 dash hot pepper sauce(hot sauce)
zest of l lemon                                               1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine beans, bell pepper, frozen corn, jalapeno, and red onion.
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, zest, lime and lemon juice, sugar, salt,
garlic, cilantro, cumin and black pepper. Season to taste hot sauce and chili powder.
Mix all together, cover, and chill. Serve cold.

Note: I used Tapatio hot sauce. The dressing is sensational in this bean salad - so many
taste sensations. It is a very colorful salad. I also used a 1/2 bunch of cilantro because I
love it. I use the leaves and a little bit of the stems because the stems have more flavor.
This recipe called for a tablespoon of salt but I cut it down to 1 teaspoon. Also the 1/2
tablespoon of cumin and black pepper is the right amount. If you don't like that much,
reduce it. You can also use another white bean instead of cannellini, like great northern.


Nancy, I hope you enjoy this recipe. It has a lot of ingredients but it is worth it.

Carol this sounds so good.  I have copied this and it will be the next salad I make.  Sounds like it would go very well with anything that gets Grilled or BBQ. 
Now I have to admit I absolutely hate the taste of cilantro so mine will be a bit different but I think it will still taste great. 
Thank You for a great recipe.

Thanks for posting Carol.  This sounds wonderful!   But since it would be enough to feed a small army, I will have to figure out how to cut it down a lot LOL.  Since my husband also doesn't care for cilantro I will sub celery leaves.  Works well as a substitute and I don't hear any complaints from the mister LOL.

Since Easter is always a favorite time for eggs, I thought someone might like my recipe for them. Eveyone who eats them raves about the taste.
6 hard boiled eggs, cooled, peeled and cut in half
1/2 c. yellow mustard
3TBLS. sugar
3-4 TBLS. Miracle Whip/to taste
1/2 tsp. celery salt
dash of tabasco sauce
pepper to taste
 Whip the yolks with the remaining ingredients and stuff the eggs.

Carol,
 I copied your Mexican bean salad, but will try to make it without the jalapenos, cilantro & hot sauce. I hope it will taste "almost" like it should but without the heat.
 Do you have an idea of how many 1/2 cup servings this makes?

Fran,  I would say about about 14 to 15 1/2 cup servings! You can do just about anything
with this salad without a few of the items!  I have been in CA for almost 19 years now so
I eat a lot of items that are hot!!! I am on a high fiber diet so I eat a 1 cup serving. I have a
husband who is a big eater so it doesn't last long. We both love it!! Enjoy!!!!

Wow!  I would imagine that this would be good if you left out Jalapeno peppers and hot sauce.  My husband has problems with too much hot.

I would imagine this would be good minues the pappers and hot sauce.  My hubby cannot tolerate a lot of hot food.

Marie,  That's fine, there are so many ingredients that you still will get good flavor.
