Make With Me- Black Bean Salsa

Black Bean Salsa

  • 2 cups drained black beans
  • 1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cucumber (unpeeled)
  • 2 tbs diced celery
  • 2 tbs diced jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tbs fresh basil
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)

To Make:
  • Combine all ingredients
  • Stir well
  • Refrigerate for at least two hours
  • Enjoy! 

  1. I knew a woman, Rhonda, who in 2007 put together a recipe book for her friends full of recipes for her friends. This recipe is from that book. 
  2. Rhonda's friend, suggests making a double recipe.
  3. Because I don't really like my food too spicy, I've made this with both no jalapeno pepper and chili powder, as well as using half the suggested amount. 
  4. The longer you let this salsa refrigerate, the more flavourful it is.

  1. This sounds so yummy! I'm not a huge fan of black beans, but this would be a good way to eat them!
