Really good recipe! Black Bean Salad

Since we are in the midst of the cherry tomatoes and green peppers, I thought I'd share this wonderful recipe. It's very fresh and has just the right amount of light dressing. I hope you like it! I found it in  the July 2002 edition of Quick Cooking Magazine. Enjoy!

Black Bean Salad

2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 medium sweet yellow or green pepper, julienned
4 green onions, chopped
3 Tbsp fresh cilantro or parsley, minced

Mix all together in bowl.

3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1 garlic clove, minced
3/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Stir or shake dressing ingredients together and toss with vegetables. Refrigerate. Serve chilled.

Edit: Added a picture! But this was taken before the cilantro was added, so imagine it with little green bits of leaves spread throughout!
