Black Bean Salad Recipe

This recipe is great for food storage because everything stores well and you don't have to cook anything (unless you are preparing from dried beans instead of canned).

Black Bean Salad

1-2 cans black beans (or 1 cup dry, prepared)
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can whole kernal corn (optional)
1 can olives (optional)
1 medium tomato, chopped (or 1 can diced tomatoes)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 to 3/4 tsp red cayenne pepper (depending on your heat sensitivity)
1/3 cup salsa
1/3 cup Italian salad dressing

Combine all canned ingredients. In separate bowl mix Salsa and Italian dressing with the other seasonings. Pour over the bean mixture. Chill and serve.

This is really a hearty meal (usually served with chips). We have it often in the summer. You can also add cooked chicken, fresh peppers, onions, etc.
