Cold Beans Salad

Summer is officially here..Oh boy! It's just beginning of summer .We can feel the heat in ON!! These couple of days the weather it's really hot and humid..I have no mood to prepare a hot and complicated meal during the heat wave,so the most easy solution is just prepared a simple meal or salad,right? Of course, there is other solution.It's called "take out or delivery order " from the restaurant but we can't afford to order meal in daily basic..Furthermore it's not really healthy and cost effective for us to eat out daily..I always store plenty of can beans in my pantry..I know eating beans is good for our health..All I need to do is just rinsed the beans in running cold water until it's run clean and mixed together with some seasoning and onion..Voila!! there you go...We have beans salad for lunch!!







Ingredients:

1 can of chickpea or garbanzo bean (Goya brand or premium any brand)
1 can whole sweetcorn( del-monte brand or any premium brand)
1 can pink bean(Goya brand or any premium brand)
1 small Bombay onion,peeled and diced
1 stalk cilantro,washed and chopped


Seasoning:

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
4-5 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sea salt or to taste
2 tbsp or more Parmesan grated cheese
Method:

1:Open all canned beans into a sieve basket.Run cold water over the beans until it's water run clear.Combine beans and all the seasoning in a medium bowl,toss well together.
2:Placed beans mixture in fridge for 30 minutes or longer before serve cold ..

Scrumptious looking salad you've got there! I think, that whole plate is not enough for me alone!

I made it with diced persian cucumber. Went to a couple of full service market but couldn't find the pink beans. Eventually found it at Target. I did not have time to chill it before dinner. It was a hit for my family! Thank you very much.
