A wonderfully refreshing salad. We serve this as a side to our Chicken Enchiladas (Chicken or Turkey Enchiladas). I originally found this recipe in LIGHTSTYLE magazine several years ago. (Cook time is for refrigeration.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine beans, sweet peppers, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper in a large bowl.
  2. For dressing, combine lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste and stir into bean mixture to evenly coat.
  4. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours until chilled.

Excellent side dish. Wonderful blend of flavors. My guests don't like spicy so I left out the jalapeno peppers. Served with Sonoran Rice #16671 and Shrimp Kabobs #19828.
