1 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 small, mild, sweet onion, thinly sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup salsa, mild, medium or hot
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
Combine beans and vegetables in a large bowl. Place the salsa in a small container, then add the lime juice and chili powder. Stir or shake to combine. Pour over bean mixture and toss to mix. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.
NOTES: This is a very simple salad to work with. I have also added other ingredients to change the flavor. I have added brown rice, as well as corn. If you like to spice your dishes up, chop up a jalapeno pepper. The combinations are endless. Find yours and enjoy.
