-1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
-1 can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
-1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
-1 can sweet yellow & white corn, drained and rinsed
-1 California avocado, diced (we did two)
-1 cup chopped celery (I omitted this)
-1 cup chopped red bell pepper (I used orange)
-½ to 1 cup chopped green onion
-Diced jalapeno pepper to taste (I used 3 and de-seeded)
-¼ cup apple cider vinegar
-¼ cup balsamic vinegar (I used Kirkland’s brand balsamic vinaigrette – 1/2 cup – in place of the balsamic vinegar and the canola oil)
-¼ cup granulated sugar
-¼ cup canola oil (I omitted)
-½ tsp salt
-½ tsp pepper
-I added in 1 can of muir Glenn fire roasted diced tomatoes
-I added some chopped cilantro
-I added half a lime squeezed over the diced avocado before adding it to the bowl
In a large bowl combine pinto beans, black-eyed peas, black beans, corn, celery, red bell pepper, green onion and jalapeno pepper. (Don’t add avocado until ready to serve.)
In a small saucepan combine cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, sugar, oil, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and boil until sugar dissolves. Let cool.Pour over ingredients in bowl and toss to coat.
Refrigerate overnight.Add avocado just before serving and toss to coat evenly.
Hope you enjoy!
