Garlic Lime Bean Salad

Garlic Lime Bean Salad

I love this simple bean salad.  It’s full of bold flavor (from garlic, onion, cilantro, jalapeno and just a touch of honey) and fiber. Make a batch for the week and enjoy it on your salad or as a condiment or side on your fave proteins like chicken, shrimp, salmon or flank steak.   If you’re heading to a party, you can even serve Garlic Lime Bean Salad as a dip with all natural gluten free tortilla chips.  Love it?  Share it!

Garlic Lime Bean Salad

Makes about 6 cups or approximately 12 servings (1/2 cup each)
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pure honey or pure maple syrup (not imitation)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
  • ½ red onion, chopped small
  • 1 bell pepper, any color, chopped small
  • 2 jalapenos, chopped small
  • 3 cans of beans, preferably organic (I used 2 cans of black and 1 can cannellini beans), rinsed and drained very well
  • Handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the fresh lime juice, olive oil, honey, salt and garlic.  Set aside.
  2. Combine the chopped red onion, bell pepper, jalapenos and beans in a medium sized bowl.   Add the dressing and stir gently to combine.  Toss with chopped fresh cilantro leaves.  Enjoy!
