    Miss Annie's Note:

    A bean salad that holds up to all your outdoor barbeques and grilling. This is a good salad with good flavors. Serve with fresh peppers on the side, so each person can kick up the salad to personal preference, or if you all like peppers, go ahead and add it to the beans before serving. Prep time includes soaking for 16 hours.

      Very fresh tasting. I served it with Mexican rice and chicken. We'll definitely make this again. I think I will measure a little lightly on the lemon and lime next time, because it was just a little sour, but really good. Thanks, Annie

      I took this to a family dinner and it wasn't a big hit but I really liked it and I loved the tartness as posted. I really enjoy the flavors of cilantro and citrus. I was a pleasant change of pace.

      I made this with 1 14 ounce can of pinto beans, and it turned out fine. We like sour, so I went ahead and added the recommended lemon and lime juice, but it was a bit too sour so I diluted it with 1/4 cup veggie broth. That made it a little soupy, so we just ate it with a spoon. I was glad I added the broth, which, together with letting it sit while I prepared the rest of dinner, cut down on some of the bite of the onion. My BF finds raw onions hard to tolerate. He's also not overly fond of cilantro, so I omitted it. Finally, to make it lower in calories I only added 1 tablespoon olive oil. Thanks for the nice pinto bean salad:D
