Mixed Beans Salad

While attending a BBQ back home a few weeks ago, my aunt prepared a bean salad/dip that she served with multigrain tostitos. You can imagine my surprise when I found myself eating quite a large amount of it! i.e. amazing deliciousness.

In an attempt to create something similar, I came up with the following:

Ingredients (5-7 servings):

  • 1 cup Garbanzo beans (Primo brand)
  • 1 cup White kidney beans (Irresistibles brand)
  • 1 cup canned corn, drained
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 diced white onion
  • 3/4 diced sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 large minced garlic cloves
  • 1.5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • optional: red kidney beans - note that the more beans you add, the more carbs you add. 
  • Mutligrain tostitos scoops
Very simply mix everything together! Add 6 crushed tostitos to each serving. I wouldn't advise adding the tostitos to the main mix as they might get soggy from the vinegrette.

This salad is perfect for a potluck, BBQ or even as an appetizer when you have guests coming over! Serve them in the scoops and you've got yourself some healthy finger food! :)
