I'm not sure where this recipe came from but my Aunt made it and I asked her for the recipe. "A colorful and very tasty cold salad that is an excellent addition to any barbecue. The cilantro dressing gives it a wonderfully fresh and zesty flavor."

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Break off ends of asparagus and wash, removing scales if tough. Cut into 1 inch pieces. Place steamer basket in less than 1/2 inch water, making sure the water does not touch the asparagus. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and steam for 6 minutes. When asparagus has cooled, add black beans, tomato, and onion. Refrigerate for several hours in a separate bowl, combine olive oil, pepper to taste. Shake well before pouring over asparagus and black beans.
