DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the dried beans, cook until tender and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, combine all the dressing ingredients and blend well. (This can be done several hours in advance to allow the ingredients to marinate.).

  • Drain the warm beans and transfer 3 cups to a large bowl.
  • Toss the black beans carefully with half of the white onion and half of the dressing.
  • In another bowl, transfer the rice and toss with the remaining onion and dressing.
  • On a large serving platter, arrange the beans on one side and the rice on the other side.
  • Cover and set aside at room temperature for about 1 hour, or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  • Adjust seasonings if necessary and garnish with red pepper and parsley (or cilantro) if desired.
