I love making this recipe in the summertime, but it’s good any time. The apple cider vinegar is what makes this so fresh tasting. There are no boring flavors here! What I love about this recipe is that you can dice up any veggies you want and throw them in.
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup sugar (seems like a lot, but necessary to the recipe)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 15oz. can chick peas, rinsed and drained
1 15oz. can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 15oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup to 1 cup chopped cilantro (according to your taste)
1/2 red onion, chopped fine
*in a large bowl, mix first 5 ingredients
*add in remaining ingredients
– This recipe keeps for about 3 days in the refrigerator. Don’t keep longer than that or the beans “turn”.
– Stir before serving. (I put salad in a large jar and shake before eating.)
– This salad is very addicting, however, I don’t recommending eating a large amount of beans at one sitting. Just saying….
