Three Bean Salad

When I was chopping up a ton of veggies at once, I made some 3 bean salad for Hubby. He has no microwave or refrigerator available for his lunches, and was getting tired of sandwiches. For this I used:

1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2-3 raw jalapenos (Hubby like VERY spicy food)
1/4 cup diced onion (you could use green or red onions)
1 can chick peas
1 can pinto beans
1 can white beans
1 can corn
Red wine vinaigrette dressing to taste

I basically chopped and drained everything, threw it in a bowl, and tossed it in dressing until it tasted good. There are some more technical recipes out there with all kind of complex dressing recipes, but ain’t nobody got time for that!

The great thing about making this at the same time I was cutting up veggies sticks is that when there was a weird shaped part on the bell pepper that didn’t lend itself to being stick shaped, I just cut it off and tossed it in the bowl. Also, I only had to clean the kitchen up once. This is also a great summer time recipe, since there is no cooking required.

Hubby loved the freshness and spiciness of this, but I couldn’t even eat it, what with all the bell peppers in there. BLARG. True love is purchasing and preparing bell peppers even when you hate them.
