Salad: Peach and Black Bean

Made a delicious salad for dinner:  five diced peaches, one can black beans rinsed, about 4 T finely chopped mint (from the back yard garden), and squeezes of honey to taste.

This was inspired by a quick read of

When we have tomatoes and cucumber I will make the real recipe - what I made though was very good and easy to make....

Peach Black Bean Salad

Sweet meets savory meets spicy as peaches, tomatoes, black beans and jalapeño come together to make the most of their delicious flavor contrast. This versatile dish is easily adapted by swapping the peach for your favorite Summer fruit. Or throw in a chopped avocado and eat it with tortilla chips for a refreshing fruit guacamole. This recipe comes to us from Jenné Claiborne of Sweet Potato Soul.
Serves 2
  • 1 peach, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/2 jalapeño, diced
  • 1 cup cooked or canned black beans
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • black pepper, to taste
Combine the diced peach, tomato, onion, cucumber and jalapeño together in a large mixing bowl. Add the black beans and stir, taking care to ensure the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Season the fruit bean mixture with the lemon juice, vinegar, cilantro and black pepper, to taste. Toss well, chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and enjoy!
