Health Highlights


1 can (15oz) Black beans, canned
1 can (15oz) Black-eyed peas, canned
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (or any colour you prefer; diced)
2 tomato Roma tomatoes (diced)
1 medium pepper(s) Jalapeno pepper (diced; remove seeds for less spice)
1/4 medium Red onion (diced)
1/4 bunch Cilantro (coriander) (chopped)
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin (for dressing)
2 tbsp Lime juice (fresh) (for dressing)
1/2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar (for dressing)
1/2 tsp Chili powder (for dressing)
1 tsp Cumin (for dressing)
1/2 tsp Salt (for dressing)
1/2 tsp Granulated sugar (for dressing)


1. Rinse and drain both cans of beans in a colander. Let the excess water drain as you prepare the vegetables.

2. Finely dice the bell pepper, tomatoes, jalapeno, and red onion. Try to dice the vegetables into pieces that are roughly the same size as the beans. For a less spicy salad, scrape the seeds out of the jalapeno before dicing.

3. Roughly chop the cilantro. Place the drained beans, bell pepper, tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, and cilantro in a large bowl.

4. Pour the dressing over the salad, then stir until everything is well coated. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to eat.
